GTU Library updated our library account software to allow two name fields. The preferred name field allows your chosen name to show on your library account when you sign in and on automated messages and notices the library's software sends. Let us know if you have any questions. 

A PIN is just the passcode you will create to login to the library resources.

To set it up the first time, enter your barcode (or Student ID). Leave the PIN field blank & Click Submit.

Two PIN fields will display. This is your opportunity to create an 8-12 alpha-numeric character PIN number.
It must contain both alpha and numeric characters (for example, 2021berkeley)
