Library PIN Code

The following will assist in creating a Library PIN Code for accessing Library services on and off-campus.

Library Services Using a Library PIN Code

ECSU students, faculty, and staff can:

  • View your library account to see if books are due, etc.
  • Request items from other CSU libraries
  • Cancel requests for CSU materials
  • Renew CSU books online
  • View course reserve lists and access readings online
  • Use the Library’s research databases off-campus

Whether you live on campus and go home on the weekends, or you are a part-time student who lives too far from ECSU to come to the Library frequently, you can continue to access many Library services from off-campus, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In order to access Library services and use the research databases off-campus,

you need to add a PIN to your Library account.

To create a Library PIN for your account or Login to your Library record

and access Library services, select the links from the Library's Home page as shown below.


In CONSULS, select "Login" at top, right

or select "My Record" from the list seen below.

All options will bring you to the CONSULS login page.


Enter your ID number in the first box. For those creating a Library PIN for the first time,
Leave the second box blank and click “Submit”. You will be prompted to create a Library PIN.


Once you create a Library PIN, your Library record with your name, address, etc.,

as well as links to see books on loan or on hold will display when you login.


Important: If you receive an “INVALID” message when attempting to create a Library PIN,

you may have already tried to create one in the past.

If you've forgotten your CONSULS PIN, you can reset it by going to http://www.consuls.org/patroninfo.

From there, click on Forgot your Pin?

Please note: You must have your university or State Library ID number available to reset your PIN.

For help, please call or visit J. Eugene Smith Library’s Circulation Desk. They will help you clear the account so you can go back and create a new Library PIN.
