Please note that your Library PIN is not the same as your NUS-ID Password (which you use to access myLINC, Canvas and NUS Mail).

NUS Students/NUS Staff/Term Card Holders/External Members:

Next, key in your Matric Number/Staff Card Number/External Membership Card Number:

An email will be sent to the email address that is registered with us. If you do not receive any email, please contact Loans & Membership at or call us at 6516 6949 for assistance:

Once you have received the email, there should be a link that will allow you to reset your Library PIN. Do note that the link is only valid for 3 hours. On clicking the link, you will need to enter your Matric Number/Staff Card Number/External Membership Number followed by your new Library PIN
