SHC Discovery: Your SHC Library Account

Accessing your Library Account

Your Library Account is stored within the Library Catalog, which is SHC Discovery.  You can access SHC Discovery and your Library Account here:

Logging in the First Time

The first time that you login to SHC Discovery, you will need your SHC BadgerWeb campus ID number.  

Your Username is your SHC BadgerWeb campus ID number, which is found in the Personal Information > Biographical Information section of your BadgerWeb account.  For the example student Inigo de Loyola, his BadgerWeb campus ID number can be found by navigating to his profile in the top right corner.  Select your account and a window will appear that allows you to select "My Profile and Settings":

Once you are on your Profile screen, locate your Campus ID number at the top of the page.  You will need this number, minus the leading zeros, to set up or reset your password.
