Accessing My Library Account

Current staff and students of the University can simply use their HKBU e-mail account information to access their My Library Account.

  1. Click on the "Other Eligible Users" tab
  2. Click on the "First-Time Setup / Forgot your PIN?" link
  3. Enter your name and barcode, and click Submit
  4. An e-mail with further instructions will be sent to the address that the Library has on file for you. Follow the instructions to complete your PIN setup

Troubleshooting My Library Account

Problem Solution
Error message "Unable to identify you through your campus identification. Please use your library identification or see a librarian for assistance" is displayed (applies to HKBU staff and students). The account information entered does not correspond to any authorised account on the University system. Please ensure that you are using the correct username and password combination, which should be the same as the one that you use to access your University e-mail account.

Should you be unable to access your e-mail account, please contact the Office of Information Technology.
Error message "Sorry the information you submitted was invalid" is displayed (applies to other eligible users). Please ensure that you have entered your barcode correctly, including the initial alphabet character.
