What is a Library PIN?

A Library PIN (Personal Identification Number) is comprised of 4 different, nonconsecutive digits and will allow community users and affiliates to:

  • Display your library account (My Library Account) to see what you have checked out and when items are due.
  • Renew materials.
  • Place a hold on material that is currently checked out.
  • Place a hold on available material for Paging.

How do I get a Library PIN?

Once you have obtained a UCR Library Card:

  1. Go to the My Library Account log in page.
  2. Enter your UCR Library Card barcode number (begins with 21210...) and a Library PIN, determined by you. A Library PIN should consist of four different, nonconsecutive digits.
  3. Enter the same PIN twice and click on "Submit".
