What do I need to log in?

Library access requires a PG Campus account. The account gives you access to the PG Campus portal and resources students use, like the Library and Academic Success Center.  Active students and instructors receive these accounts automatically, however, staff with other units may need to request an account.

Why do I have to log in to PG Campus to use the Library?

The PG Library licenses content from publishers and content vendors for use during our students' academic studies.  Current students, faculty, and staff at Purdue Global can only access these resources, and therefore, require entering credentials before access.  

I don’t have a PG Campus account.  How do I request an account?

You will need to request access by either submitting a ticket via ServiceNow or call Tech Support at 866-522-7747 option 0.

In ServiceNow, use the General Request form.  Then, in the Short Description field, include your name, "Charlie" network username, and email. Then enter: Request a PG Campus instructor account with Library access enabled.

You also need a CVue account. If you don't have one, your manager will need to request it on a separate ServiceNow ticket.

How do I use my new PG Campus account?

  • Visit
  • Enter your university username and password.  Note: Your username will be your Gmail username, but without the part (jsmith for example, not smithj like on the GHConnect site).
  • Change the “I am” setting from Student to Faculty Member.  *This is required.*
  • Click the Sign In button.
