Setting up your PIN for the Library Catalog
About your PIN (Personal Identification Number)
All persons with borrowing privileges at the Dartmouth College Library can set up a Personal Identification Number (PIN):
Having a PIN is necessary to use the Self-Checkout Stations located in campus libraries.
