You don't need to sign in to search for resources in WorldCat, but you do need to sign in if you want to check what you have on loan, when items are due back, to renew items, to view the status of holds or to check if you have any fines or charges.  You can also use your account to create and save lists of WorldCat resources.

To sign in look for the Sign In button in the top-right corner of the WorldCat homepage. 

If you are a BGU student you should use your full BGU email as your username and the same password you use for Blackboard. 

If you are a BGU staff member or an external library member your username is the barcode number from your ID / library card.  You will need to set your own password the first time you login using the set/reset password button.

If you followed the guidance above but are having difficulty logging into your library account please check that you can login successfully to your BGU email account - if you can, contact us (library@bishopg.ac.uk, 01522 583790).  If you can't, contact the IT Helpdesk (helpdesk@bishopg.ac.uk, 01522 583666).
