Tips on using the Library and its resources - No. 4.

How to access your Library account and renew books.

Did you know that you can see your Library account online?  You can see the list of books you have borrowed, see what books you have requested and you can also renew your books online, as long as no one else has requested them.

Here’s how to log in to your Library account:

Step 1: Click on Login in the top right hand corner of the catalogue search screen (click on the Catalogue tab on the Library web site to see this)

Step 2: Enter your Library barcode number (under the barcode on your student ID card) and your PIN. What’s my PIN? If you’re a Birkbeck student, it is the last four digits of your student number (also on your ID card). If you are not a student, click on the What’s my PIN? link to see guidance on what to enter.

You will then see your borrowed items, the links to renew them, and also, on the right, links to take you to lists of items you have requested, your Library profile, your Library fines and more

If you try to renew a book and another Library user has requested it, you won’t be able to renew – you will need to bring the book back.
