Changes to Library Account Logins

September 17th, 2013 by Ferguson Mitchell

As part of the Library’s response to the campus initiative to remove barcodes from the new AggieCards, students, staff and faculty can now also use their Kerberos ID and passphrase to log into their library account via the My Account links on the left bar of the Library home page.  For older cards, both the 14 digit barcode numbers and 9 digit account numbers will work from the Other Accounts and Proxies login page.  Please consult the Account FAQ for additional information.
