Your Novanet Account: Login tips

by Laura Landon on 2019-07-26T11:46:00-03:00 | Comments

Patrons can now log into their Novanet accounts.

The new MtA Novanet Library Catalogue enables Mount Allison students, faculty and other patrons to search and get access to books and other materials available in the Mount Allison Libraries collections and beyond, through other Novanet libraries. All of these changes are designed to facilitate and expand access to information and resources for all members of the Mount Allison community.

You can use your Novanet account to:

The best login is your 7-digit student, faculty or staff number, with the zero at the beginning. Your password is a 4-digit PIN. The new system re-set your PIN to the last four digits of your phone number. If this PIN isn't working, please contact Access Services to re-set it.

Patrons with community borrower cards will continue to use their 13-digit barcodes (beginning 1200400) to log in, plus their 4-digit PIN.

You can use these same login credentials for Relais, our interlibrary loan system, to request books from outside Novanet libraries.

To log into your Novanet account, click the My Account / Renew Books link on the main page of the Library website, or go to

1. Go to the "sign in" link at the upper right of the screen
