What are the advatages of having an account over a patrons account. what are the differences?
Thanks for the great question! Whether or not to create an account on our web site is a personal preference. Accessing your library patron record from "Sign in to Patron Record only" -requires you to enter your library card barcode number, and allows you to see the current status of your library account. In other words, from this log in you can find out when anything you’ve checked out is due back, see if your requested items are available for pick up, or learn about any fines that have accrued. Here too, you have the option to renew, pay fines and request materials. When you decide to create an account, you don’t need your library card number to log in-you get to choose a user name and password. Logging in this way allows access to your patron record too, but also gives you the option to add content to our website, such as making a comment on a blog post, or participating in a forum.
I hope this clears things up for you.
if i signed up online can i get my card number online also?
