How do I register on the new catalogue?

Go to the Log In page. The link is at the top-right of the screen. Enter your 14-digit library card number, without spaces, and your PIN/password. If you haven’t registered before, you’ll be taken to the registration page.

Why do I have to register?

Registration is a one-time process that allows you to create an easy-to-remember login name (username) that you can use instead of your card number to check your account.

Why do I have to create a username?

You can login with your username or your library card number. That’s up to you. The reason we require all users to select a username is because the new catalogue has additional (optional) functionality, like commenting on books and keeping track of your reading on shelves. And to support this, we need all users to create a username.

Tips on creating your username

Your username must be unique, but otherwise you have a great deal of flexibility when you create a username. The name can be up to 24 characters long, and you can use any combination of letters and numbers, as well as underscores ( _ ). It cannot consist entirely of numbers, nor use spaces nor other non-alphanumeric characters.

The best username is one that is easy for you to remember. You can use your real name, but something more anonymous is recommended. Remember that the public comments which you post will include your username. 

You can also change your username at any time. Keep in mind that any content you added previously will show your new username.

Do I have to provide my birthdate?

No, your birthdate is not required for registration.

Do I have to provide my email address?

An email address is optional. It will be used if you forget your PIN/password and request a reset.

I can’t remember my PIN.
