Welcome to SAE Library: Account Activation

Welcome to SAE Library

Welcome to the SAE Library! 

There are three accounts you will need in order to access library resources.

  1. An OpenAthens account, 

  2. your Personal Library account, and
  3. a LinkedIn Learning account.

To find out how to set up or activate these accounts, please, see below.  

Activating your Library Account & E-Resource Access

1.        OpenAthens

OpenAthens provides access to the library's licensed electronic resources. You will be set up with an OpenAthens account when you commence your studies.

Staff & Students from the following campuses will not need to set up a username and password, and they will use their instutional email for access.

- Australia,

- Dubai, and

- New Zealand.

Staff & Students from the following campuses will receive an automated email with instructions on how to create a password once an account has been made for you by the Library:

- Amman,

- Belgrade,

- Jakarta,

- South Africa (Cape Town, Johannesburg & South Africa Online).

See the OpenAthens Guide for information on how to access resources using OpenAthens.

2.         Personal Library Account

Your personal Library account provides you with access to:

  • Some electronic resources: These types of resources may include ebooks, ejournals and emagazines.
  • Your personal library record: This enables you to see what you have borrowed, see the date that library items are due, and place digitisation requests for PDFs. 

You will be required to activate your student gmail (or other SAE designated email account) before you can access your personal library account. The Library will create this account for you. If you are unsure of your username, please write to the library and provide your name and student number.

If you are a student of SAE Australia, you do not need to activate this account. When accessing library resources, you will be directed to your local Single-Sign-On. If you are already signed in through your local single-sign-on, you will be automatically authenticated and signed in to your personal library account.

See the Library Systems: How to login guide below for more information on how to login for your campus.

3.         LinkedIn Learning

As an SAE student you have free access to LinkedIn Learning tutorials whilst you are undertaking study.  LinkedIn Learning provides a range of tutorials on a number of different topics which you can use to support your learning at SAE.
You will be required to activate your student gmail to enable access to LinkedIn Learning tutorials.  Please contact the library if you require assistance.

The guides and video below will show you how to access both your OpenAthens, personal library and LinkedIn Learning accounts.
