This is not the same account as your Library Hub Login. Creating a personal library account is entirely optional.
You do not need to log into the Library Hub to conduct a search, however, there is an option to create a library account to manage your physical loans, i.e. renewing books, saving searches and placing items on hold. To use this function, you must create and sign in to your own, separate, library account.
To do this, click Sign In at the top right of the catalogue and set your own password using your student number/barcode. (refer to the images below).
Things to Remember:
Your barcode is your student number.
NOTE: If your home library is a non-WMS Library, you can still create an account, but you will not be able to view or renew loans you have with your home library. You can still place holds on print resources you find on the Hub and save your searches.
Open up the library catalogue.
Click sign in at the top right corner.
If this is your first time signing in, you must create an account. To do this, enter your student number (barcode) and click set/reset password. Once you have set a password, you will be able to sign in.
Click My Account and select checkouts from the drop down.
Tick the items you wish to renew and click renew items.
An email will be sent with an updated due date.
If you have created a complex search and want to avoid remembering which search terms you entered to generate your search results later, you can save your search. To do this:
To save items from different searches into a custom list
To avoid a book that you would like to borrow that is out on loan from being renewed by another user, you can place it on hold.
NOTE: The Library Hub does not provide a courier service. Students will need to physically go to other libraries if they chose a print copy within the UD that is not held at their home library. Please make sure you can travel to the library you choose to place a hold with or contact the library about their policy on providing scanned chapters of items.
Want to keep an eye on what's new? This new search alert feature allows you to monitor new or relevant books and resources that become available via the Library Hub. You will be automatically notified each week if any new results meet your saved search alert criteria. For example, if you wish to be updated about any new eBooks about Pastoral Care that are available via the Library Hub, you can create a search alert to notify you when they become available.
