How to Set Up Your Account

  1. Find Your Library at:
  2. Click on the My Account tab
  3. Click on “Get a PIN” under “My Account”
  4. Enter your e-mail address when prompted for login
  5. Submit
  6. Check for an email with a link to set your PIN

Note: You must first be registered at a GLIS library and have provided a unique e-mail address (no one else in the library system has it, such as a spouse or child). If you do not have a unique e-mail address, ask the library staff about our MWR Card option.

My Account Features


Make requests for items and manage your requests online. If you go on vacation or TDY and are expecting a delivery, you can “freeze” the request until you return so you do not lose your request. Also, view your borrowed items to see when they need to be returned. If you haven’t quite finished, you may renew the item online if no one else has requested it or you have not reached your renewal limit.


You can update the following information when you log into My Account: mailing address, deployed mailing address, telephone number and your email address for notices. You can also update your PIN. If your account is about to expire, call the library with your new DEROS date to ensure you can still use online services.


Create a “wish list” to help manage the list of movies you want to see or books you want to read. You can also make a list to keep a bibliography for research or homework.


Give your opinion and rate something! Tell others about a great book you read, or give a movie five stars for explosive action awesomeness. Write a review! Tell us, and everyone else, what you thought.


Instead of re-typing a popular search, just save it! We will remember the search for you. Not only that, if you check “mark for email,” every Monday we will send you an e-mail list of any new items that match your search query.


The library does not keep a history of what you have checked out, but you can access your own “history.” Opt in to start a history of items you have checked out (and opt out at any time) for your own personal use. With this feature, you can also limit your searches to not show items you have already checked out.


RSS, short for Really Simple Syndication, allows a person to have information sent to them instead of visiting a Website frequently for updates. If you use a RSS aggregator, you can subscribe to a feed from your library. Click on RSS at the bottom of the web page.


Borrow books while you are deployed. You must have a My Account and set up your account to send books downrange. For more information email:
