BUILD IT Express: Accessing the Library from Off Campus

A short version of the BUILD IT tutorial, with just the essential information.

ACCESSING THE LIBRARY FROM OFF CAMPUS

It is easy to access all the library electronic resources from home, including all the databases and eBooks.
 You can do this directly from the library homepage
 or from Blackboard.  

OFF CAMPUS ACCESS

Even if you are not on campus, as a Bellevue University student, you still have access to all the library databases. You will be prompted for your Bellevue University login.

Your username is your 8 digit student ID# preceded by Bellevue\ . Your password is the same one you use for Blackboard and BRUIN. It must meet the requirements of 8-32 characters using a combination of upper and lower case letters, numerals, and special characters. You will be required to change your password every 90 days. 


ACCESSING THE LIBRARY THROUGH BLACKBOARD

Students taking online classes may access the library resources from their Cyberactive (Blackboard) homepage, Login to Blackboard, then click on the Student Services tab. ;

TROUBLESHOOTING AND TECH SUPPORT

If you experience any problems with access, here are some things you can try:

  • Has your password been changed within the last 90 days? If not
    reset it here.
  • Clear your cache (browsing history, temporary files, etc.)
  • Make sure cookies are enabled
  • Try another web browser or install the latest version of your current one
  • If you are trying to access through Blackboard, try accessing directly from the library homepage instead.
  • Restart your computer

If you still cannot access the databases, please contact the Help Desk:

  • Technical Support is available by contacting
     ServiceDesk@bellevue.edu or 800-756-7920, Option 4
