To improve security, the login method to the Library Web Services will be changed. The authentication system will also be suspended at the time of the switchover.

Authentication after the change

Authentication for those whose IDs on the card begin with 002 or 004 (emeritus professors, some researchers, University of Tsukuba associates, visitors with library cards, etc.) will be switched from the university's unified authentication system to the library's authentication system.
As a result, when you click on "Login" at the top of the library website or when you try to move to a service that requires authentication, you will see the options shown in the image below.
Please select the appropriate one for your ID.
Once logged in, you will remain logged in until you log out or close your browser.
