Accessing e-journals, e-databases and e-books off campus requires you to have a valid PIN, which validates you as a bona fide Wits student or member of staff.
You set the PIN ONCE only, but if you forget this number, you have to ask a librarian to create a new PIN on your behalf. This is a waste of everyone's time, so you are advised to write down your PIN and keep it in a safe place. Do not assume you will remember this number - you will not!
You can renew your books yourself with your PIN, as well as using it for remote access.
You should never have to pay a Library fine for an overdue book!
