The statewide consortium has changed the way students and staff authenticate into the libraries' online databases. We have been updating our links to the new authentication system for an entire year and now we have changed to a new discovery system and no longer have access to fix any expired accounts. All students and employees need to use the MyPioneerPortal login to access online library materials.
