Click on Guest, and you’ll be prompted to sign in using your Northwestern network username and password (the same as for theROCK and Moodle).




After signing in, the top right corner will show your name. Clicking here will bring you to My Library Card, where you can see:

  • Requested Items

  • Fines/Fees

  • Blocks or Messages

  • Personal Details


In the Loans menu, you can renew checked out items that are eligible for renewals.
