ERROR 403 Message

To further enhance UL security, ITD are implementing Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to a variety of UL services, including the Library’s electronic resources.

From 24 January 2024, you will need to input your full UL email address and password to access these services.

E.g. firstname.lastname@ul.ie for staff and studentnumber@studentmail.ul.ie for students.
