Personal Identification Numbers (PINs)
What are PINs for?
PINs allow you to access your library account information and place holds on items through the online catalogue. They also allow you to see which items you have on loan. To see your account information enter My Account.
Your PIN also gives you free access to the Source — paid online resources the library subscribes to.
How do I get a PIN?
Choosing a new PIN
Your PIN is a 4-digit number of your choice. To keep your account secure we recommend that you do not use sequences of numbers that appear on your barcode.
The library subscribes to a wide range of online resources from specialist websites through to research databases. There is something for everyone: from fun games and animated stories for children, to study guides for teens, encyclopædias and dictionaries, resources for the family history researcher, through to online newspapers, music, video, audiobooks and e-books. As these services are provided free for library members, we ask you to enter both your library card number and PIN. Use the Source now.
