How to Look at Your
Patron Information

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.

Every authorized library user has a user record, which identifies the user and contains information about the user's circulation activity.  Each user record also contains a personal identification number (PIN) which ensures that library activity is confidential.  Your PIN is CHANGEME unless you have chosen a different one. If the PIN you enter does not work, please contact a library staff member.

To view My Account you must be in the Online Library Catalog.  To view the catalog, click on Catalog in the red menu bar at the top of the screen.
