My Library Account
to renew your checked-out items, request items to be put on hold, recall items that are checked out by another user and transfer books from one library to another one that is closer to you. To get started, you will need to create your PIN.
Creating your PIN
Create a PIN (a password) to use My Library Account services.
Using library resources from off-campus
Need to access library resources from off-campus? You just need to configure your computer for off-campus access. You will have the choice of using the Anyconnect VPN or web VPN. I recommend the AnyConnect VPN for most people.
Use any of our Ask-a-Librarian services including 24/7 chat.

Get help when you need it. Call us or stop by one of our service desks for the face-to-face personal touch or use one of our other tools and get assistance at a distance. Even in the dark of night, UC Chat is there to help. Try our newest service, Text a Librarian. Check out the options.
