There are two links in the top right-hand corner of the WorldCat screen.  The one that says My Library Account: Sign In is to your library account where you can monitor and renew your loans. Your username is your BGU student number.  This account is not connected to your BGU computer account so you will need to set a password for it separately using the ‘set/reset password’ link.  

The link that says WorldCat: Sign In is to a WorldCat account.  This has nothing to do with BGU and is completely optional.  A WorldCat account will let you do things like create lists, insert tags and add reviews to WorldCat.

If you are using WorldCat and click on one of the orange 'View Now' buttons to open an e-book or article (particularly if you are off campus) you will be prompted to login with the same username and password that you use for Blackboard.
