IWU OCLS Tutorials: Accessing OCLS - OCLS Support


Librarians may not be available during all open hours but will answer ASAP.

After Hours & Weekend Help


I need access to the OCLS library or my Library Access Number. 

I cannot log into OCLS.


OCLS now has a Single Sign-On system which eliminates the need for library access numbers.

  1. To access OCLS now, please sign in to the myIWU Portal.
  2. Click on the OCLS link on the right side of the page. 
  3. You should now have access to the library databases.

Your username is the first part of your student email address; everything before the @ sign (firstname.lastname123@...). Your password is the same one you use to log into the Student Portal.

We do not have access to your password; it is encrypted for your security. If you do not remember your password, you will need to contact IWU Support to reset it: or 877-489-5678

If you still experience any trouble logging in, you may want to try clearing your cache and removing the “cookies” and other temporary files from your web browser in order to access the online library. If you are not sure how to do this, here is a link to an article from IWU’s IT Knowledge Base on how to
 Clear Temporary Internet Files to help you delete temporary files.
