Locating ScholastiCAT in the Welcome to the Library box on the CSS Library homepage.

Next, click on "Sign In" in the right upper corner of the blue header. 

Locating the Sign In link within ScholastiCAT.


Next, you may be prompted for a username and password. Use your CSS login (the same login you use to access my.CSS, Brightspace, and your CSS email). 

***NOTE: Use all small letters for your username when accessing your library account. Additionally, if you have trouble logging in, please contact the Computer Helpdesk ( or 218-723-7007). 

The username and password prompts


Next, you will see "Sign In" has been replaced with your name. This indicates you are logged into your library account. Click on the arrow next to your name to display a dropdown box.

Access your library account by clicking your name in the upper right corner.


Next, click "My Loans" to open up your library account.


After clicking "My Loans," you should be brought to the page listing all the items checked out to you. To ensure the list is for current loans (and not historical or previous loans), make sure "Active Loans" is set.


For more detailed information about your library account, see the tutorial "Locating, Accessing, & Using Your CSS Library Account".

Contact the library if you have already returned an item, have lost or damaged an item, or have any questions about your account. 

Updating Your Personal Information

Please review your personal information and update it as necessary. You may do this by clicking on "Personal Details" from within your library account. (See the box above for instructions on accessing your library account.) Please review your home address, phone number, and email address. If changes need to be made, please contact the library. To prevent your new information from being overwritten, we will need to update this information on the back end. Contact the library for help or questions!
