My Library Account
Access your Library account to see what you have checked out or renew your OhioLINK items. When creating your Library account, be sure to ask at the Circulation Desk for your Library account number.
CIM students/faculty/staff are considered guests of Case Libraries, so your Case ID/password will not work when logging on. You will need to create a pin the first time you log in. Your pin should consist of a letter/number combination and be 6 digits in length. To log in, click here: My Library Account.
