Welcome to Enterprise!

  • easier search tool to find what you want
  • create lists for your own interests
  • take a tour of the catalog features


You will need your library card number and the password to log into your account.  The password is "patron" unless you have changed your password. Enterprise does not require you set up an account or username. Remember to create your own unique password so your account is secure. It is important to log out at the end of your session if you are on a shared computer. This will insure your privacy from the next user.


Wilmette and Kenilworth residents may log into MY ACCOUNT to access their personal library accounts. You must login with your 14-digit library card number and password. The MY ACCOUNT function will keep track of items you have checked out, due dates, fines, any holds you may have, and allow you to renew most materials. You will be able to create lists and keep track of items that you wish to read or have read.


All aspects of the Enterprise Catalog are private. There are no social or public elements.



Do I have to register?

Registration is not needed to simply search the catalog, but if you wish to place holds, use the My Account functions, or create a list, you will have to log in with your 14-digit card number and password.

Why should I change my password from the default password, “patron”?

This protects the privacy of your account information. It is wise to use a familiar password that is unique to you.

What about privacy issues?

All elements of the Enterprise catalog are private. There is no public element.

How does the keyword search work?

In the first “phase,” title, author and subject fields are searched. This first search does not include rarely selected fields (including publisher and notes). The Broaden Your Search link is always available, making it easy to expand to a more exhaustive result set when a user has not found what he or she is seeking.

Why does the catalog change what I searched for?

I typed doctors but the search resulted as “physicians.” This is called auto-suggest; the system will automatically change a search so that it matches a common library subject heading.

What is a facet?

Facets allow you to narrow down large quantities of search results. You can narrow down by facets to find out information such as availability, format, target age, and topic. Facets live on the lefthand side of the search results page. Make sure to select the INCLUDE option when you select a facet. You probably have seen facets already on sites like Amazon.com.

How do I change my password?

Click on My Account, and within the Personal Information Tab, you'll have the ability to change your password.

Can I pay my fines online?

Click on My Account, and click on the "Online Fine Payment" button in the righthand side box.
