Renew your books from home with a library PIN

February 8th, 2011

in Frederick S. Pardee Management Library, Mugar Memorial Library, Pickering Educational Resources Library, Science and Engineering Library

How do I obtain a Library PIN (Personal Identification Number)?

The My Account feature of the library catalog enables you to access your record and renew books with a Library PIN. To establish a PIN, please visit the Circulation Desk of any BU Library and request one from the staff. You will choose the PIN yourself, so be sure to select something you will remember. If you later forget your PIN, you will need to return to the Circulation Desk and create a new one.

PINs are available to current BU students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Borrowers from other libraries are not eligible for this service.

For more specific information such as loan duration, please check the circulation policies of individual libraries, or try our Ask a Librarian service.
