What's my Library ID?     Your Library ID or Username is the start of your WCU email address before the @ sign. It is the same as your Canvas ID.

What's my Password?     The Library does not set your password for you.  You must click the "Set/reset password" link below the Password box to set your password, or to reset your password if you forgot it.
