You have to log on to the library’s e-resources from off-campus with your campus network Username (=student number) & unique Password. If you cannot log on successfully, it might be because your password is not synchronised for access to all SU security systems. Please change your password in order to synchronize your new password for all security accesses including access to the library's e-resources from off-campus.

1.   Go to and choose a new password.
2.   If you cannot change your password yourself, mail IT Help Desk or phone 021 808 4367 (office hours
      8:00-16:30) to provide you with a new password.

IMPORTANT: For security reasons it is necessary for users to renew their password every 90 days
