  2. Enter first and last name
  3. Select an Account Type from the dropdown: Student, Professor, or Staff
  4. Enter your email address and create a password. The email address and password will allow access on other devices outside of the university network.

Users with personal subscriptions should choose a different email address to register with via the university license or cancel their personal subscription before registering through the university license.

Welcome New and Returning Students!

welcome mat imageWelcome to all new and returning students! Here’s three quick things to know about the library to get you started this semester

Textbooks: If your textbooks haven’t arrived yet, please check at the desk in the library to see if your instructor has put a copy on 2-hour reserve. We don’t have all of the textbooks used in MUH classes, but there are some that are available. Your Miami ID card is your library card.

Printing – Use your Miami ID as your print card. You can “charge” up your ID card at the MuLaa box in Schwarm Commons, and in 2nd floor of Mosler. Black and white print jobs are 10 cents per page, color is 25 cents a page. We have a “Quick Print” computer if you are in a hurry to get a document printed. More info at our Printing and Copying page.

Hours – Our hours of operation have changed. We’re here 8am-8pm Monday-Thursday, 8am-5pm Friday, closed Saturday and open Sunday 1pm-5pm. Our library hours page has all of the dates we’re closed.

Rentschler Library is getting new computers and some new furniture! While that’s happening, please excuse our mess!  Workers will be breaking down old computer carrels (at left) starting Aug. 18, assembling new computer tables, and setting up/installing other cool furniture. We will be open while this is going on (8am – 5pm Monday-Friday). The first batch of new computers has already been set up in our classroom (SCH 213).

One of the pay-for-print stations (at left) was also temporarily moved nearer to the individual study rooms.

In the meantime, if you need to use a computer, there are several groupings of them in the main part of the library, or you can use the new computers in our classroom. All of the computers are connected to printing so that you can print course schedules and any other documents you need.
