New Library Catalog Feature
Library users who are searching our online catalog can now request books, CDs, DVDs and journals (but not articles) directly from the catalog. This is a nifty feature for our users–but it requires some setup.
- You need to have a record in our library database. And that record needs to include a barcode number. We now use the barcode number from your Mayo ID badge– we are no longer using library-specific cards. If you’re not sure whether your record contains a barcode number, please call your local campus library to have them check for you.
- Once you have a barcode number in your record, you’ll need to set up a PIN– this is to protect your privacy. You can set up your PIN at http://mayo.iii.com/patroninfo. The PIN has to be 4 numbers. Don’t use numbers like 1111 or 1212.
- OK– you’ve got your barcode number and your PIN so you’re ready to start requesting! This video tutorial will run you through the steps of placing a request.
