What's my Library PIN?

Bailey Library patrons may view their library account online and renew library items. In order to access your account, you need to enter your netID and your library-assigned PIN. Please contact the library at [email protected] or 734-973-3741 for your library-assigned PIN. Once you have gained access to your online library account, you should use the "User PIN Change" function to change your library PIN to something only you know (and will remember). Please note that your library PIN is unconnected to any other PIN or password on campus, such as your MyWCC login. Changing your PIN at the library will not change it anywhere else, and changing a PIN in another web service will not affect your library PIN. We require the use of a library PIN in addition to your WCC netID to increase the level of security and confidentiality of access to your library account.

If you are having problems with account access, please call the Circulation staff at 734-973-3429 during open library hours.
