Accessing your library account

This blog post should answer any questions concerning your library catalog account.  Once you are on the library catalog page, click the "Log in" link located at the very top of the page.

You will see a screen popup that asks for your username and password.  If you are a student your username is your A number.  If you are faculty or staff member, then your username is the first part of your CU email address.

If you are unsure what your password is, click the "Forgot My Pin" link at the bottom of this box.  You will be prompted to enter your username and an email will be sent to you to reset your password for your library account.  PLEASE NOTE: THIS DOES NOT RESET ALL OF YOUR CU ASSOCIATED PASSWORDS AND ONLY RESETS YOUR LIBRARY CATALOG PASSWORD.

When you receive your email concerning your library password, click the log-in button at the top of the page and enter the appropriate information.  Once you have done this click the "My Account" button that appears at the top of the page.

Once you are in your account you have several options.  Under the "Checkouts" tab you can see any items that you currently have checked out and the due date associated with each item.  This tab allows you to select any items you want to renew as well.  Just click the box by each item you want to renew and click the "Renew" button at the bottom of the page.

The "Personal Information" tab allows you to review your contact info and change any information (including your pin). You can also sign up for SMS notifications that will alert you when items are about to be due, overdue or when a hold arrives for you.  If you want to see a list of holds you have placed you can do this under the "Holds" section.  You will also be to see any holds that are available for pickup.  Don't worry, you will receive an automatic email when items arrive for you.  The "Fines" section shows any fines that you have associated with your account.  

If you have any issues regarding your account, please let us know!
