Setting Up A Library Account

If you are new to Naropa, or have never used the library, and would like to set up a library account through email, please follow these instructions:

Contact us through your Naropa email account as it is university policy. Email

In the body of the email include:

  • First and last name
  • Physical address
  • Phone number
  • Naropa email address
  • Community designation: undergraduate, graduate, low-residency, staff, faculty
  • Naropa ID number
  • A photo of your Naropa ID card
  • After we have created your library account you will receive an email message prompting you to create a password for your library account.

Your library username and password is for logging into your library account via our Discovery catalog.

The link to our catalog, to which you may log in with that username and password is:

To log in, simply look in the upper right hand corner of the page, and you will see the Sign In link. This will allow you to place physical materials on hold and renew your own physical items if needed.

If you are a distance student, and you place materials on hold, please send us a reminder email to:, so that we will be aware that we need to send you your items.

Any items that we send to you will need to be returned to us, so please be aware you will be responsible for the return shipping costs.

You do not have to be logged into the catalog to use it to search for items. If you need to access any electronic materials (including eBooks, and eJournals, etc.) in our system, you will use your Naropa network single sign-on username and password (the same thing you use for your email, Canvas courses, MyNaropa, etc.)
