Q. Why doesn't the library allow the use of the user's name as a login userid?

That long number is impossible to remember! On the personal information page there is a field called "Alternative Id". Can I use that as a login userid? If so, how do I enter something into that field?


Currently, all of our online resources authenticate users with their library card numbers and PINs. Unfortunately, we do not have the financial resources at this time to write (or contract) the coding necessary to use alternative IDs.

The Library is aware patrons would prefer this feature, and we hope to offer it in the future.
