  • On the afternoon of Thursday, October 3rd the Digital Library and TIDE sign-in systems will be integrating, allowing users who are logged into AIR systems to move directly to the Digital Library without having to sign in with a separate Digital Library account. During the implementation of this update the direct sign-in page for the Digital Library will be briefly unavailable on Thursday afternoon from approximately 2:30pm-4:30pm HST. Once the integration is completed, new user accounts created in TIDE will be automatically provisioned in the Digital Library. Users with both TIDE and Digital Library accounts will be able to sign-in to both systems using their TIDE username and password. Questions?
