Library Orientation (Fall 2023): Library Catalogue - My Account

This guide introduces the Library and its services to new Marianopolis students. It supplements information that all students receive through the Library Orientation session that they receive in their English 603-101-MQ course.

Logging into "My Account"

"My Account" is a feature in the Library catalogue that allows you to:

  • see what books you have checked out and when they are due
  • renew books that are not overdue or have not reached their renewal limit
  • request books that are in storage or place checked-out books on hold so the Library can put them aside for you when they are returned
  • see if you have any outstanding Library fines

To set up "My Account," follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Library catalogue
  2. Click on "My Account" in the blue toolbar.
  3. Click on "User PIN Change". Fill out the form:
    • Your 7-digit student number: This is the same number that your use as your username when logging into the College's computers or into Omnivox. (e.g. 1234567).
    • Your PIN:  Your temporary PIN for "My Account" is "CHANGEME", with no spaces and all in capital letters.
    • Enter new PIN and Re-enter new PIN: Create your own PIN, then enter it again to confirm it.
  4. Click on "Change PIN". If successful, you will see a message that says, "1234567's PIN has changed". Click "OK".

Now you're ready to use "My Account". To log in, simply enter your 7-digit student number and your new PIN in the upper-right corner of any page of the Library catalogue. When you successfully log in, the login boxes will disappear and be replaced by a link that says "Log Out". Now you can use any of the "My Account" features in the catalogue's top menu, or you can place books on hold through the link displayed beside every record.

If you are a returning student: Use the username and password that you set up last year. If you cannot remember your password, please go to the Circulation Desk in the Library with your student ID and request a password reset.
