In My Account, information about current library transactions can be viewed. This page allows you to review bills, checkouts, and current hold requests. From the My Account page you can cancel holds, view library messages and requests, and reply to library messages. A personal identification number (PIN) can be changed or checked-out materials can be renewed.
