Help! I still cannot log in.

If you are having a Single Sign-on issue and are experiencing a delay in getting it resolved, you can use the following link in the mean time (if you are an active student, faculty or staff member):

Alternate way to log in:

  1. Go to https://prospero.umuc.edu/cgi-bin/ezpdbi.cgi
  2. Log in with your last name and barcode or EMPLID.
  3. You will then be taken to the Library home page, and the links to Library resources should now work.
