Most digital resources accessed through the library will require you to login through OpenAthens when you attempt to access resources from a personal device or from an off-campus location.

To log in with OpenAthens, select to log in as "Student" or "Faculty/ Staff" and enter your university credentials:

  • Students should choose the Student option and login with your TU Canvas login information
  • Faculty and staff should choose the Faculty/ Staff login and use your TU email login information.

If you are locked out of your account after multiple attempts, please contact Information Systems to reset your password ( or 423-636-7346). If resetting your password does not work, please contact the library ( or 423-636-7320).
