Q. How do I access the "My Account" feature in the Library Catalogue?

Answer

"My Account" is a feature in the Library catalogue that allows you to:

  • See what books you have checked out and when they are due. For details, please consult this FAQ.
  • Renew books that are not overdue or have not reached their renewal limit. For details on how to do this, consult this FAQ.
  • Place checked-out books on hold so the Library can put them aside for you when they are returned. For details, please consult this FAQ.
  • See if you have any outstanding Library fines. For details, please consult this FAQ.

To set up "My Account," follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Library catalogue.
  2. Click on "My Account" in the blue toolbar.
  3. Click on "User PIN Change". Fill out the form:
    • Students:
      • Your 7-digit student number: This number can be found on your student ID card (e.g. 1234567).
      • Your PIN:  Your temporary PIN for "My Account" is "CHANGEME", with no spaces and all in capital letters. Note that this PIN is independent from all other logins at the College.
      • Enter new PIN and Re-enter new PIN: Create your own PIN, then enter it again to confirm it.
      • If you are a returning student: Use your seven-digit student number as your username and the PIN that you set up last year. If you cannot remember your PIN, please go to the Circulation Desk in the Library with your student ID and request a password reset.
    • Faculty and Staff:
      • Your 7-digit student number: Use your employee number in place of a student number
      • Your PIN:  Your temporary PIN for "My Account" is "CHANGEME", with no spaces and all in capital letters. Note that this PIN is independent from all other logins at the College.
      • Enter new PIN and Re-enter new PIN: Create your own PIN, then enter it again to confirm it.
  4. Click on "Change PIN". If successful, you will see a message that says, "__________'s PIN has changed". Click "OK".

Now you're ready to use "My Account". To log in, simply enter your 7-digit student number and your new PIN in the upper-right corner of any page of the Library catalogue. When you successfully log in, the login boxes will disappear and be replaced by a link that says "Log Out". Now you can use any of the "My Account" features in the catalogue's top menu, or you can place books on hold through the link displayed beside every record.
