In order to log in, there are a few materials you will need:

  1. The Cloud Library app install on your device

  3. Your I-Card

The first time you open Cloud Library your are required to login. After you log in once, the app will remember your information and you won't have to log in again. While each device's login process is slightly different, they all require the following information:

  • Library Card ID: Located on your I-Card (14-digit number starting with 2141)

After entering the necessary information, you have to read and agree to the End User License Agreement in order to use the Cloud Library service. Once you agree you should be brought to the Cloud Library Home Screen.

Setting Up Email Notifactions

Once you have installed and logged into Cloud Library for the first time, we recommend that you set up email notifications.

  1. Using the left hand navigation, tap Settings.
  2. Tap Email under Notification.
  3. Select "Yes, notify me" when prompted.
  4. Enter you email address including “” or whichever email provider you choose.
  5. Cloud Library will send you a verification email. Log into your email an click the link within the email.
  6. If you do not receive an email, make sure you spelled your email address correctly and try again.
  7. Once you verify you email address you will receive notifications when books on your hold list become available to you.

When enabled, email notifications will send you an email whenever a book from your hold list becomes available to you. This is useful because available books currently being held are removed from your hold shelf after 5 days.
