Change in Library Authentication Info

Thursday, August 20, 2015

Attention students, faculty and staff:

Beginning August 24, 2015, the University Libraries will be implementing a change to off-campus access for library resources. To comply with vendor license agreements, a more secure access method of authentication will be used, requiring users to login with their campus username (w#) and password, as are currently used for WINGS, Pilot and other Wright State online authentications.

All students, staff and faculty will need to know their login information to access library materials. Library staff will not have access to your login credentials.

Please contact CaTS at 937-775-4827 for assistance in obtaining or updating login credentials.

For assistance in finding and accessing library materials please contact the Information Desk at 937-775-2925 or visit

Thank you,
University Libraries
