Transcript:

When you visit the Princeton Theological Seminary Library catalog website in a web browser on your phone or other mobile device, you will automatically be directed to the mobile version of the catalog, m-catalog.ptsem.edu.

From here you can use the search box to keyword search the entire catalog or use the dropdown menu to narrow your search to a particular location, for example, E-Books and E-Journals.

There is also a mobile app called MyLibrary! which you can download for free from the Apple Store or Google Play and use to access the Princeton Theological Seminary Library catalog. Tap the menu icon in the upper right to view more features, including “Switch Library” which allows you to select another Sierra library’s catalog, such as Cairn University (Masland Library).

You can access your patron record (My Account) from the MyLibrary! app, but first you’ll need to establish your PIN through the guest borrower login in a web browser. PINs cannot be created from the app.

The first time you login at https://catalog.ptsem.edu/patroninfo, enter your name (Last Name) and barcode (number on your ID card) and leave the PIN field blank. When you submit the form, you will be prompted to create a PIN.
