Library PIN Codes:
A library PIN codes is like a password. It can be any combination of letters and/or numbers ranging from 5-12 characters total. The PIN is stored in your libary patron record on the CONSULS system.
What are PIN's Used For:
The PIN is used to access information about your personal library account. With the PIN you can view a record of books checked, overdue books and fines. You also need the PIN to access library databases from home or other computers outside of the CCSU campus.
How to get a PIN:
When you first register at CCSU you do not have a library PIN. To assign yourself a PIN you must visit the View Patron Info (http://csulib.ctstateu.edu/patroninfo) page.
Creating a PIN
When you access the View Patron Information pages for the first time, you will need to enter your LAST NAME, SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, and then enter a PIN twice. The PIN should be something you can remember easily.
