Fast Registration:

Note: For both CUNY and LOCAL patrons, remember to fill in patron status, type, and contact information (including address).

Please never enter a Social Security number; entering the University ID barcode number is recommended. (You may wish to first search for the person by SS# before creating an account just in case the person has ever attended another campus.)

If you decide to enter EMPLID, it MUST also be added as type '07'. If you add EMPLID for any ID type, please be certain you also add it as type 07. Otherwise this patron will require ongoing manual corrections including expiration updates. (By adding this ID without type '07', the patron will be skipped the automated expiration date updates.)

Be certain to enter a Home Library (your MAIN campus sub-library) and a Patron Type (both based on your campus) as well as a Patron Status (based on how you describe the patron). Please leave ILL library blank.
