Go to My Library Now
“My Library” is the name given to your account with the TU Libraries. With My Library you may renew materials, save searches to run at a later date and request the library notify you when it adds new materials relevant to your interests.
This section provides a brief overview of each of these capabilities:
- How to sign in to “My Library”
- Renewing Materials
- Saving Searches
- New Book Notification
If you encounter problems with using “My Library,” please let us know by email or by calling 918-631-2873.
How to sign in to “My Library”
Click here to get to My Library. This will display the My Library sign-in screen. Enter your last name and TU ID card number and then click on the button. The library system will return your My Library account information. If you encounter any problems signing in to your account, please contact the Circulation Desk at 918-631-2873 or send the library an email.
My Library allows you to keep track of your interaction with the library. You can, for example, quickly check to see what items you have currently borrowed. Just click on Items Currently Checked Out to see a list.
Each title is displayed as hyperlink. Clicking it shows a portion of the bibliographic record for that item. The due date and call number are also shown.
Through My Library, you may renew most items. Click on the button to renew all items in the list. Or renew only a few items by clicking in the check box next to the item(s) you want to renew and then click on the button. Unless someone else needs the item and has placed it on hold, My Library will renew the item for you and display the new due date.
You may search the catalog while still signed in to My Library. To do this, click on the “Search Catalog” button on your patron record. Click the “Logout” button to search anonymously. The “My Library” button will take you back into your My Library patron record screen.
One advantage of searching the catalog while you are in My Library is that you may save searches for running at a later time. To do this, perform a search on a topic or author of interest in the catalog. When the search results display on the screen, you will notice a button to the right of the search box marked “Save this Search.” If you click on this button the current search will be saved in your My Library account where you may access it any time you log in.
Saved searches are called “Preferred Searches.” To access a list of all saved searches, click on the Preferred Searches link on the My Library screen.
The list of searches indicates the type of search (e.g., AUTHOR, TITLE, SUBJECT, WORD, etc.) followed by the search terms used. These are hyperlinked. Click on the link and the catalog will run the search for you again.
New Book Notification
One advantage of using the “Preferred Searches” feature of My Library is you may quickly check to see if the library has added materials relevant to your areas of interest simply by re-running the search.
In addition, if you check a box in the “Mark for Email” column, My Library will automatically re-run your search at the first of each month and send you an email notification of any new books or other items acquired during the previous month that match your search criteria.
You may remove a search any time you wish by clicking in the checkbox in the “Mark to Remove” column and then clicking on “Update List” button.
Be careful of the Clear All Searches button because it will do exactly that: delete all your saved searches!
