A PIN (Personal Identification Number) is a personal password for additional privacy protection, which is created by yourself at your first-time login to My Circulation Records. The default PIN is empty.

That means, at your first-time login, you do not need to type anything in the "YOUR PIN:" textbox, just leave it blank. You only need to type your name & barcode and click the submit button. Then you will be asked to create your new PIN. After typing your new PIN, you have to type it again to confirm it. After the above steps, you will be able to login "My Circulation Records". Your new PIN will be effective accordingly.

Please press "Forget YOUR PIN" to reset your PIN. An email will be sent to the email address in your library record. If you can't receive the email or you aren't sure what your email address is, you can bring your student/staff card and go to the Information Counter at 2/F or 3/F of the Library to seek for assistance.
