Library Password (PIN), MCards, and UMID Numbers

About the Library Password (PIN)

The Library Password (PIN) will have to be used when you wish to access licensed research databases, online journals, and other electronic resources from off campus; place interlibrary loan requests; place a hold by using the “Request” button; or access “My Library Account”.

MCards and UMID Numbers

MCard (UM-Dearborn photo ID) is required for checking out any library materials, renewing materials, and paying fines and fees. UMID numbers (printed on your MCard) are required for off campus access to library online resources, and to place Interlibrary Loan and MelCat requests. You can get your MCard at the University Center Information Desk.

Create a library PIN
  1. From the Mardigian Library's Web site (opens a new page), select the "My Library Account" link.
  2. Select whether you are "UM-Dearborn Student, Faculty, Staff, or Alumni" or a "Guest Borrower."
    • "UM-Dearborn Student, Faculty, Staff, or Alumni" - enter your last name and your 8-digit UMID.
    • "Guest Borrower" - enter your last name and 14-digit barcode.
    • Leave the PIN field blank.
  3. Click the "Log In" button. This will not actually log you in yet; you will still need to create your PIN.
  4. The page will refresh, and you will need to re-enter your last name and UMID or barcode. This time, however, the form will include two PIN boxes so you can create and verify your new PIN. Your PIN must be at least four characters long and can include letters and numbers.
  5. When you click the "Log In" button the second time, you should be taken to your library account.

Changing your PIN
  1. Log in to your library account with your current PIN.
  2. The box in your patron record has a link to "Modify your PIN." Select the link and follow the instructions in the pop-up window.

Lost your PIN or need further assistance?
  1. From the Mardigian Library's web site (opens a new page), select the "My Library Account" link.
  2. Select whether you are "UM-Dearborn Student, Faculty, Staff, or Alumni" or a "Guest Borrower."

Note: Library staff members do not have access to your PIN, but can remove your old PIN, allowing you to create a new one of your choice.
