ILL/Renew Username and Password Updated

Good news for anyone who uses the Twin Cities Library: renewing and requesting library materials just got a lot easier!

You can now access a list of your checked out items, request renewals, and create and renew interlibrary loan requests online using your regular Saint Mary’s username and password. This will replace our former system that required your fourteen-digit barcode and a special password for access.

With the new login system, your username will be the same as for other Saint Mary’s online tools. Your password will also be the same, and will automatically update when you change your password in any other online service.

Remember with this new update that your SuperSearch account is still separate from your Saint Mary’s account information. You will still set the username for your SuperSearch account yourself, and the password will not update with other services. Make sure you write down your login information when you create your SuperSearch account!

Want to try it out? Log in to your account today!

SuperSearch Interface Wonky

Saturday, 8/9 - SuperSearch apparently didn't show up to work this morning, because the interface is weird looking. It looks like it is all text and left-aligned to the page. And the background might be blue.

This isn't your error - this is SuperSearch being terrible. Bad SuperSearch.

How to fix it? 

We opened SuperSearch in Firefox, Chrome, and Explorer...refreshed all of them a few time...eventually, Firefox started working for us normally. So - play around in different browsers...eventually SuperSearch will get out of its funk and work for you!

If you are unable to get away from the blue-screen-of-text-death, get in touch with Twin Cities Library and we'll help you out.

Chat with us on our website. (At least that works!!)
