My Account lets you view your checkouts, holds, and any fines you may have. You can also view your personal information, change your PIN, and set up your preferences.

Go to My Account page by clicking My Account from the upper-right corner of the header. If you are not already logged in, the system will prompt you to log in before you can access the My Account page.

Getting around in My Account

There are four My Account tabs: Personal Information, Checkouts, Holds, and Fines. Click on a tab to open it up.

Understanding the summary box

The summary box (1) gives you a quick view of the number of items you have currently checked out, the number of items you have on hold, and the amount of fines you owe your library. You can click a heading (2) (for example, "Checkouts") to open the corresponding tab.

The summary box also shows your user status. Some statuses prevent you from performing certain actions (for example, if you have unpaid fines, you may have a status that prevents you from renewing items you have checked out). If you have questions about your status, talk to a librarian at your library.

Alert icons

Alert icons will appear in My Account when a new action is available to you. For example, if you have a hold that has arrived and is ready for you to pick up, you will see an alert icon on your Holds tab and in your summary box next to the Holds heading (3). Alert icons will appear when:

  • You have overdue checkouts
  • You have holds that are ready for you to pick up
  • You have any new or unpaid fines

These topics will explain more about each tab in My Account:
