To log in to your library account, go to the Library Catalogue and click on 'my account'. This will take you to the login screen where you will need to provide your student ID number or staff username, and your University PIN.


Library account login, first field requires University ID, second field requires University PIN.


A common issue on this screen is to use your University Password (as it is used very often for logging in), but this will not work. Your University PIN is a four-digit number set up when you first enroll and sent to you by email. If you are uncertain of your PIN, you can follow our instructions to view or reset it. If you reset your PIN, allow up to an hour before you try logging in again.

If you are still having any difficulties with your PIN or accessing your library account you can contact us and we will be happy to help you gain access. You can email us at
