WEBVTT 1 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:02.400 Hello! In today's tutorial, 2 00:00:02.400 --> 00:00:08.890 I'll be covering how to create an online VANCAT account. A VANCAT account will allow you to see what books ... 3 00:00:08.890 --> 00:00:09.076 you 4 00:00:09.200 --> 00:00:15.369 have checked out, view your fines, and renew books from the convenience of your own home. 5 00:00:15.440 --> 00:00:22.773 There are two accounts - your Vanguard account and your VANCAT account. The Vanguard account is the same username and ... 6 00:00:22.773 --> 00:00:24.353 password you would use to 7 00:00:24.480 --> 00:00:30.851 log into your Canvas page and your Vanguard email. You will also use your Vangard username and 8 00:00:30.920 --> 00:00:37.813 password to log into library resources from off campus. If you are having trouble with off-campus access, 9 00:00:37.880 --> 00:00:45.365 please view our video tutorial covering that topic. Your VANCAT username is your student ID number and 10 00:00:45.440 --> 00:00:49.360 your password is whatever you generate. 11 00:00:49.360 --> 00:00:51.840 Before you can generate a password for your VANCAT 12 00:00:51.840 --> 00:00:53.960 account, you must first fill out a library 13 00:00:53.960 --> 00:01:01.352 application form.
