2 What IS my Library Account? Why is it important? Your Library Account is what enables you to borrow materials from the Library as well as access our online resources from off-campus. By accessing your account through the Catalog, you can see when items checked out to you are due back, and, if they are overdue, how much each fine is, so far. You can also renew the items that you have checked out without having to come to campus, as long as your account is valid and not blocked. Next…

3 About My Account Your account is valid if you are currently enrolled and/or working at RPCC. Student accounts become invalid between semesters; if you register for a subsequent semester, your account will become valid when that semester starts. You must login, whether you are on or off campus. Next…

4 More about “My Account” Your account can be “Blocked” and still be valid. Your account will be Blocked if you have five or more items overdue and/or owe $15.00 or more in fines.
