Over the next few days you will notice some changes in the way that you access the online card catalog as well as changes to your library PIN/password. Some of these changes are only temporary as we move forward in our migration process with Polaris.
We are working to link the search box at the top of our Web site to our new card catalog system. The current search box requires that you enter your zip code and then choose a link to the Hayner Library card catalog you wish to search. You may also access the new online card catalog system here:
hynp.illshareit.com (for our Downtown Library)
hyap.illshareit.com (for our Alton Square Library)
hygp.illshareit.com (for our Genealogy Library)
All of the links (above and via the search box) contain the same information. We are currently working to combine the links into one easy-to-search catalog similar to our previous online card catalog. We will post an annoucement when the updated box is ready to use.
You will also need to reset your password for your online library account. The password was previsouly refered to as a PIN in our old system. The PINs/passwords from the previous library software did not transfer to our new system. Because of this, you will not be able to log into the new online card catalog using your old PIN/password. To reset your PIN/password, please call or visit the library; a Library Assistant will be happy to reset your PIN/password for you. We apologize for the inconvenience.
So far, the Overdrive eBook catalog has not been affected by PIN/password changes. If you should experience a problem logging into your Overdrive eBook account, please call or visit the library; a Library Assistant will be happy to reset your PIN/password for you.
We hope that you enjoy the new features of our online card catalog. You now have access to over 10 million items in the new Illinois Heartland Library System making IHLS the largest library consortia in the country!
