PINs to be Used to Access Library Accounts

A new security feature was implemented in the Library catalog Jan. 3. To access your Library account or to borrow books from the LANCE cluster you will need to enter a Personal Identification Number (PIN) in addition to your name and campus ID plus TSU; you will be notified of this change by the system when you try to perform these functions.

The PIN can be any alpha-numeric string, four to 30 characters long. The system will provide onscreen information for creating a PIN, but if you have any questions or problems please call the Pickler Memorial Library Circulation Desk at 785.4533, or the department supervisor, Gayla McHenry at 785.4037.

If you forget your PIN, please call the telephone numbers mentioned above and staff will clear it out of your Library record so you can enter a new one. PINs are encrypted in the Library system when they are created; staff will not know your PIN, they can only clear it from your record. At this time, a PIN will be needed for access to your Library account or to borrow from the LANCE cluster only; a PIN is not required to borrow from the MOBIUS Central Catalog.

The Library system is separate from the Banner system and TruView and the PIN you use for the Library system does not affect PINs you use for other systems.
