Policies: Library Catalog

Accessing your account

The library catalog allows users to access their library account online to check item status, change PIN, and renew items.

A user's library account ID is EITHER:

  • If your ID has six digits, use your six-digit Gold Card number plus a leading zero
  • If your ID has seven digits, use your full seven digit Gold Card number

A user's PIN is a 4 digit number and it is available at the circulation desk.

Users with a Friends' card will use the number on their card.

From a Library Catalog screen, click on "My Account" at the top and then make the appropriate selection: "User Status Inquiry", "User PIN Change", or "Renew Materials".

Once you choose your action above, you must enter your user ID from your Gold Card and your 4-digit PIN. Follow the Catalog instructions to complete your account access.

Renewing Items Step by Step

1. Navigate to the Library Catalog home page and click on "My account."

2. Click "Renew Materials."

3. Enter your Gold Card # and PIN number (to find out your PIN number visit the Circulation Desk).

4. So long as your items are not overdue, you may then select any or all of the items you have checked out for renewal.
