We’ve had a number of people asking us this week on how to access their library accounts on the new Tyndale Library catalog.
To access your account you can sign in to you “My Borrower’s Account” on the new catalog.
- Go to the Tyndale library homepage: www.tyndale.ca/library
- Click on the “Advanced Search” link
- Click on the “My Library Account - Sign in” link in the top left-hand corner
- Enter your library barcode number in the “Borrower’s barcode” box
- Enter your MyTyndale password in the “Password” box
If the above steps do not work for you it could mean that you need to reset your password. To do so, go back to the “My Library Account - Sign in” screen and click the “Set/reset password” link. Follow the instructions.For more information and help please contact one of the Tyndale librarians. Contact Information
After months of work behind the scenes Tyndale’s Library Services is about to make the final switch to WorldCat for the management of our local library resources. Patrons will be able to search the Tyndale Library resources or expand their search to libraries worldwide. Whatever you choose items available to the Tyndale community will always appear at the top of you list. Ebooks are fully integrated. There are also links to online articles. All items signed out in our old system will be transferred to the new system. When you log in to your borrower’s account in WorldCat for the first time you will use your existing library barcode on your Tyndale ID card. You will then be prompted to create your own password.
Some functions work quite differently than before. The best way to get started is to check it out.
We have also created a research guide to tell you more about it.
Our librarians are always happy to answer any questions you might have and assist will effective research strategies. Click here.
