LRC Website: New Users


Welcome to the LRC!

Please follow the steps below to register for access to LRC resources.

If you have any questions, please use the Ask LRC Staff button to submit your question or Chat with LRC Staff button (if available) to chat with us in real time.

Step 1: USU Single Sign On

In order to access the LRC website, you must have a USU Single Sign On (USU-SSO) account.

To Register for a USU-SSO account, use the link below to access the USUHS Service Desk's USU-SSO Account Registration form (a.k.a. Account Request Application (ARA)).

Alternatively, e-mail to request assistance with your USU-SSO account.

If you have a current email address, you already have a USU-SSO account.

Once you have a USU-SSO account, proceed to Step 2.

Step 2: LRC Account

In addition to a USU-SSO account, you must have an LRC account and your LRC account must be linked to your USU-SSO account.

Once you have a USU-SSO account, complete the LRC New User Form (link below) to notify the LRC. We will set up your LRC account and link it to your USU-SSO account. This process may take one business day.

Step 3: USU In-Processing Form

Optional. If you were issued an in-processing form instructing you to visit the USU Learning Resource Center (LRC) for a signature, you have two options.

Option A: Electronic Form

If you have an electronic form, please email the form to LRC.REF@USUHS.EDU. LRC staff will digitally sign the form and return the signed copy to you.

Option B: Paper Form

If you have a paper form, please bring the form to the LRC Circulation Desk for staff to sign. 

  • Hours: See Circulation Desk under LRC Hours below or to the right.
  • Location: Learning Resource Center (LRC), Building D (NSAB Building 73), USU main campus.

Step 4: CAC Registration for LRC Door

Optional. If you require physical access to the LRC space (USU Building D) outside of our staffed hours, please register your CAC for the LRC front door.

Each time you are issued a new CAC, you must re-register your new CAC with USU Security.
