Library PIN setup

Create a library PIN
  1. Go to My Library Account (located on the Mardigian Library web site). 
  2. Select whether you are "UM-Dearborn Student, Faculty, Staff, or Alumni" or a "Guest Borrower."
    • "UM-Dearborn Student, Faculty, Staff, or Alumni" - enter your last name and your 8-digit UMID.
    • "Guest Borrower" - enter your last name and 14-digit barcode.
    • Leave the PIN field blank.
  3. Click the "Log In" button. This will not actually log you in yet; you will still need to create your PIN.
  4. The page will refresh, and you will need to re-enter your last name and UMID or barcode. This time, however, the form will include two PIN boxes so you can create and verify your new PIN. Your PIN must be at least four characters long and can include letters and numbers.
  5. When you click the "Log In" button the second time, you should be taken to your library account.
Changing your PIN
  1. Log in to My Library Account with your current PIN.
  2. The box in your patron record has a link to "Modify your PIN." Select the link and follow the instructions in the pop-up window.

Additional PIN information

Off-campus Access

When you are off campus, you will be prompted to prove you're a University of Michigan student, by logging in with:

  • your last name
  • your 8-digit UMID
  • your library PIN

Create and change your library PIN online through My Library Account. Your library PIN is NOT the same as your Kerberos password (which you use to log into Canvas and your U of M Dearborn email).

Contact the library's user services desk at 313-593-5559 during regular library hours if you have any difficulties setting up your Library PIN online.
