Text Instructions

  1. Access resources from the Michener website. This ensures you are using links that grant you access to Michener subscriptions. Links that are Michener “persistent links” work too – these are easy to recognize because they begin with “lrc.michener.ca”.
  2. When you click on a resource you would like to access, you will first be directed to our off-campus login page.

    Enter your Michener network username and password when you are directed to our off-campus login page.
  3. Enter your Michener Network/Outlook login and click Submit. This is the same login you use to access the Michener computer network, WiFi and Outlook. Your Blackboard password is not the same as your Network password.
  4. If your login information is correct, you will automatically be re-directed to the resource you would like to access.

Troubleshooting

General

  • Your Network login is the same login you use for Michener Outlook email, myMichener, computers in the LRC, and Michener WiFI. If you are unsure if your Network login is working, login to the Michener Outlook Web App or myMichener.  If you can login to Outlook or myMichener, use the same login to access LRC resources from off-campus. If you are locked-out of the Michener network or Outlook, please contact IM Helpdesk (x3369) to reset your password.
  • Your Blackboard password is not the same as your Network password.
  • Continuing Education students are sometimes assigned a group username and password instead of a personal Michener login. Please contact your course administrator or check your course package or check your Blackboard course page for an announcement with login information.
  • Distance Education Students and Users Within a Hospital/Clinic Environment: The computer firewall must allow remote access to connect to LRC resources.  Some Internet service providers in remote areas and corporate sites employ firewall restrictions to prevent remote access.
  • Your computer browser must accept cookies to connect to LRC resources. These cookies only contain your session information and will expire when you close your browser.
  • Please contact LRC staff if you have any questions.
