Winter Wonderland

A few students have been wondering lately about Library barcodes and PINs. An email message including barcode and PIN information was sent to your EOU email address on the first day of classes. If you did not receive the message, please let us know, using the Answerland email webform.

If you haven't created a PIN, you can easily do so from the library home page. Link to Your Library Account (beneath Quick Links) and follow the directions that come up on the screen.

While you're visiting the home page, take time to review Library information available to you from Services for Off-campus Students. You will find frequently asked questions, tutorials, instructions for printing a library card, and more.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions about Library services, or need help finding resources for assignments or projects. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to utilize the library from wherever you are!
