How to Sign In to Your Account

Your library account allows you to check on the status of anything you've checked out or placed on hold, including due dates, fines, and availability.

One common point of confusion: You don't need to login to this account to access databases, but if you're off campus, you will be prompted to sign in via our Off Campus Proxy. For more details, see our Off Campus Access Guide.

1. Start at the HNU Library Website (, go to the Library Accounts dropdown, and select "Checkouts & Fines."


2. Select the category you belong to. (If you're Faculty or Staff, click the "Library Staff & Faculty" button.)

3. Sign in with your standard HNU login credentials. Remember, your User Name isn't your full email address--it's only what appears before the @.
