You Need a UMass Pass ID for Certain Library Services

Do you have your UMass Pass ID (i.e., your student ID)? If not, please consider registering for one. You’ll find instructions at https://www.umassd.edu/umasspass. You can also contact the UMass Pass Office at 508-999-8134 or umasspass@umassd.edu.

Recently, we’ve received several questions from students unable to sign in to our catalog (also known as Primo). In all cases, these students had not yet registered for their UMass Pass.

New students typically get their UMass Pass IDs when they come to campus. Of course, this semester most students are working remotely and many have not yet applied for their IDs. If you’re one of these students, please consider getting your ID.

When you register for a UMass Pass, you will automatically get a library account. This will allow you check out physical materials from the library and to sign in to the library’s catalog. You’ll be able to manage your library account and to submit interlibrary loan and document delivery requests using a link in the catalog.

If you have questions about accessing library resources, please email libsys@umassd.edu.

Announcing a New and Improved Interlibrary Loan!

Beginning Monday, August 24th, UMassD students, faculty, and staff can again request books, dvds, cds, and more through interlibrary loan. We paused this service in March when libraries across the country discontinued book loans due to COVID related closings.

The resumption of physical item loans coincides with the launch of a mobile friendly redesign of ILLiad, i.e., the website you use to submit ILL requests. The new site makes it easier to search your history and to resubmit, edit, and cancel requests. The redesign also includes a new form for multimedia requests.
