What do I need to get started using the Library?

Contact your Academic Librarian

The Academic Librarians are your direct link to S&LS and it's a good idea to make yourself known to the appropriate Academic Librarian if you are a new member of staff.

Getting your TUSC

Human Resources carry out an induction for all new University staff. Your image is captured as part of your induction and your Teesside University smart card (TUSC) is printed.

Your TUSC allows you to:

  • Borrow and renew books - you will need your User name and PIN to do this
  • Access to University buildings and the Library during self service hours
  • To use the MyPrint/photocopying system in the Library and around campus
  • To make cashless payments at catering outlets throughout campus
  • Use as a form of Identification

Access to your Library account is via your University User name e.g. X1234567 and 4 digit PIN, for information on how to set up or change your PIN click on the link below.



The MyTUSC services page enables you to select TUSC related actions such as cancel or replace a lost TUSC, add funds to Cashless catering or MyPrint, see the link below.

Please Note: you should have set your security details and PIN at MyLogin before performing any actions.


IT account

This will be created by your school. Please direct any queries to your school IT helpdesk.

Your IT account enables you to login to PCs on the University campus and also to access electronic resources available through the library both on and off campus.



You need a PIN to borrow items from the library, to renew and reserve items online via MyAccount. You can set up your own PIN or re-set an existing PIN by logging on at: MyLogin

Select the option to Manage your security details from the top left hand side menu and follow the onscreen instructions.
