Your library account is automatically set up as soon as we receive your information from the university; this usually happens close to or right after the start of your first semester. Your Suncard (or your Pitchfork card) is your "library card."
Your library privileges start on the first day of classes of your first semester and continue until you graduate, or until you no longer enroll for classes. If you are an enrolled student during a spring semester and you enroll in the upcoming fall semester classes before the spring semester ends, you will have your library privileges continue on throughout the summer even if you are not enrolled in summer classes.
To access your library account to check on due dates, recalls, holds, etc., start with the Libraries home page at http://lib.asu.edu.
Mouse over "My Accounts" on the navigation bar, then click on "My Library Account."
You'll be asked to login with your asurite ID and password and then your account information will be displayed.
On the left side of the screen you see the number of active requests (including holds) that you have placed as well as a link for "Preferred Searches" for any search strategies you have saved. A link for Lists will only appear if you have saved any catalog search results in your account.
Clicking on the request link will show you the items you have requested to be picked up from the shelf, or recalled from a borrower if already checked out, with information on the status of each request.
If you have any items checked out, they will display in the main section of the screen by default. Otherwise the main section will display one of the other categories (Preferred Searches or Lists) in which you have saved some content, if any. The "Items Checked Out" list will display the items you have checked out and their due date. Here you can renew any items that allow renewals and have not been recalled.
The library automatically uses your ASU email address to send notifications to you. If you normally use a different email, be sure to forward your ASU email to it. If the library does not have an email address for you, notifications will be sent to the mailing address listed for you in MyASU.
