You can access your library record by going to the library catalogue and clicking on ‘My Account’.  You then just need to enter your student number and University PIN

Once logged in you will be able to:

  • View the items you currently have on loan
  • View items you’ve previously borrowed
  • View the status of resources you have requested
  • Manage your reading lists

Next to each item you will also be able to see the date your loans need to be returned or renewed.  Individual resources can be renewed by selecting the option ‘Renew Marked’ or you can renew all of them at once by selecting the option ‘Renew All’.

Most items can be renewed up to 15 times but there are a few reasons why you might not be able to do this.  You won’t be able to renew items that have been requested by other users, these will be listed as ‘Hold’ on your account.  Please remember to return ‘Hold’ items on time as you will be charged £1 per day if they are overdue.

You also can’t renew items if you let them get more than 7 days overdue, or if you have an outstanding charge of more than £20. 

We can help you if you’re having difficulty renewing your items.  Just ask a member of the library team or email libraryhelp@northampton.ac.uk.
