Log into your account

In your Library account you can:

  • View and renew your current loans

Why and how do I sign in?  

Signing in also allows you to use online library services:

  • Request items, renew loans and check fines

To sign in, click the Sign in link at the upper right corner of the screen and enter your student ID barcode number (14 digits) and password. Your default password is the last 4 digits of your phone number (if you wish to change your password, contact your library).  You will know you are signed in when your name appears in the upper right corner of the screen. Make sure you Sign out at the end of your session.

Why should I sign out?

Signing out ensures your library account, personal settings, search history, and e-Shelf contents cannot be viewed by others. Signing out is most important when using a public computer; however, it is good practice to sign out no matter where or how you are accessing Novanet.

The 'Check/renew my Novanet Library loans' link is on the Library home page

You can also sign in to your Novanet Library account from the Novanet results page.

From within Novanet the Sign In link is located in the top right corner of the screen

Login screen

Sign in using your Mount ID barcode (14 digits starting with 2935900) and PIN (usually the last 4 digits of your phone number). Note: your myMount ID will not work on this screen.

An alternate access to your Library account  can be found via the user panel in upper right of the Novanet results screen. Click on "Sign In".

View & renew your loans

Your account information will display your active Loans. You can renew all of your checked out materials at once by clicking on Renew All or one at a time by using the check boxes and the Renew Selected link. 

  • Once you are finished renewing, double check the new due dates to make sure each renewal was successful.

Note: The Borrow Anywhere, Return Anywhere program allows you to return your books at any participating academic or public library
