Welcome to SWOSU!

Welcome! This guide is intended to help faculty, instructors & graduate students who are new to SWOSU learn about the SWOSU Libraries, resources, and services that are available to you for your classes, your research, and teaching collaborations with librarians.


Your SWOSU Card 


Your SWOSU Card serves as a photo ID and doubles as your SWOSU Library card for borrowing library materials. All current SWOSU students and employees are eligible to borrow materials from the SWOSU Libraries. To borrow materials from the Al Harris Library or McMahan Library @Sayre, all patrons must present valid photo identification such as your SWOSU Card, Driver’s License or Passport. 


Remote Access

You can use the Library's online resources 24/7 from anywhere with Internet access. Some of the library's online resources require that you login before you can use them. 

  • Employees: Login with your GoSWOSU username and password.
  • Preceptors: Login with your last name and E-value number.
