  • You will receive an automatic email with further instruction to create your login and password. 
  • For category, select "Macquarie University Alumni/Partners/Community" and for Library Membership, select "Alumni (Macquarie University)". You do not need to upload any ID as there will be an alumni verification check.

2) Create your OneID login and password

  • Follow instructions from the email. This will be your alumni OneID and password.

3)  Login to online databases using new OneID and password
