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: LRC Account

Complete the LRC New User Form (link above) to apply for an LRC user account. This process may take one business day.

  • You must have an LRC user account in order to access LRC resources.

Step 2: USU Single Sign On

In addition to having an LRC user account, you must also have a USU Single Sign On (USU-SSO) account.

  • When you complete the LRC New User Form above, LRC staff will review your information and determine whether you need to separately register for a USU-SSO account.
  • If you have a current email address, you already have a 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.
