Frequently Asked Questions



How do I log in to the library?

  • If you are trying to log in to the databases to search for articles, simply click on the link for any database from these lists: Databases by Subject or Databases A-Z . If you are off campus, you will be prompted to log in using the first part of your email address and the password you use for Online Delhi.
  • If you are trying to log in to view or renew materials you have checked out, go to My Library Card in MILO. It uses the same Delhi Single Sign On used to log in to email, Online Delhi, etc. 
  • For more details and other library logins, see this page.

How do I check something out?

  • Bring the item to the front desk on the main floor of the library with your SUNY Delhi ID card. Your ID is also your library card.

What type of items can I borrow other than books?

I checked out a book but I need to keep it a little longer. Can I do that?
