NISNetwork Information Services Account

A Network Information Services (NIS) Account is a computer account that allows access to library electronic resources, such as article databases, ejournals, ebooks. It also allows you to have an CSULA campus email account.

An ID and Password are assigned to you when you apply and obtain the NIS account. You should memorize the ID and Password. You cannot change the ID, but you can change the Password if you feel it is not easy for you to remember. To change the Password, you can use a computer at any campus computer lab, or come to the Library Reference Desk where staff can help you.

For more information about NIS account and how to change the Password, visit the NIS account page at /its/techsupport/helpdesk/nis_account.htm
