BGSU Firelands Library

Welcome to the BGSU Firelands Library

Many of you will be accessing information from remote sites.  You have access to the library resources electronically!

When you attempt to log on to our library's resources from a remote site (not on our Firelands campus) the computer will ask you to authenticate yourself.  This insures that you are indeed a Firelands student and allows you to use all the services from the Library.

Click here to get to the library's homepage.   As you begin to search, a screen will pop up that asks you to insert your username and password.  Use the left side, BGSU students.

You will then be able to search for and order books and bring up full text of articles.   

Scholarship Corner
