Your Library Account

All students, faculty, and staff are registered with the Geoffrey R. Weller Library within 24 hours from registration; this normally enables users to access their library account and online library resources with their campus login if they hold a current University ID. If you experience any issues with library access, please contact the library.

There are two possible login methods available for users to access library resources, providing that they have both been setup: your campus login and your library barcode and PIN method.

  • The alternative to the campus login method is your library barcode and PIN. You may need to contact the library to set this method up if you have not obtained a UNBC ID card.
  • If you are unable to login to library resources with your campus login, please contact us and we will activate or update your library barcode and PIN. The library barcode and PIN login can be used immediately after we update it in our library system.
  • You may also find it helpful to refer to our login troubleshooting information for some general tips about accessing library resources.

If you obtain a new UNBC Photo ID at anytime in the future, it takes 24 hours before the library system is updated with your new library barcode, however, your university credentials should continue to work.

Online Access to your Library Account

To login to your library account go to My Library Account. Online services include requesting or renewing library materials, viewing outstanding fines, changing or setting your PIN, and saving lists of material for later review.

Your Personal Identification Number (PIN)

Your 14 digit library account number (located on the back of your UNBC ID card) and your PIN may be used as an alternative login to access electronic library resources. Your Library Account PIN may be assigned by library staff or you may set or modify your own PIN via My Library Account.

Account Expiration

Student library accounts have an annual expiry date of September 30th, faculty and staff library accounts expire April 30th.
