To use some features, you identify yourself by logging in. You log in by typing your patron barcode number (library card number) and your password. Your library may allow you to set up a user name for logging in, instead of requiring the barcode number.
Some libraries require you to log in each time you need to identify yourself. For example, you may log in to request a hold, and log in again to view your patron account. At other libraries, you log in only once, and you remained logged in until you log out. If your library provides the single log-in feature, you are logged in for your entire session the first time you use a function that requires log-in. You can also log in for the session by selecting Log In at the top of the page. When you are logged in, your name and a Log Out link are displayed at the top of the page.
Important: Always log out to protect your privacy. If you are using the online catalog in the library, do not leave your personal information visible or accessible at the library workstation. To log out, click Log Out at the top of the page.
Some libraries allow you to log in once for your entire Polaris session. Follow these steps to log in for your entire session.
Note:If you are working in the library, you may be required to insert a card in a reader and type a password or PIN to use a library workstation. After you log in to the workstation with your card, you may be automatically logged in to Polaris. To log out of Polaris only, but remain logged in at the workstation, click Log Out at the top of the page. To log out of both Polaris and the workstation, remove your card from the reader.
The log-in form is displayed.
Your library may accept a user name instead of the barcode. To set up a user name, click Create username. For more information, click User’s Guide.
If you have an account but have never had a password, you may be able to set up your password online. Click create a password. For more information, click User’s Guide. If you need a password but do not see the create a password link, contact the library for assistance.
Your name and the Log Out link are displayed at the top of the page when you are logged in.
Logging out protects your privacy. If you are using the online catalog in the library, be sure to log out.
