Basics of LearningExpress Library:

Creating a User Account

When you first enter the LearningExpress Library site, you will be asked to create a username and password. If you are using this database within the library, your username can be anything, but when you try to access your account outside the library, that username won't work. We strongly recommend using your library barcode number as your username, which is the only acceptable format outside of the library. The password you create must be at least 6 characters in length.

Creating an account allows you to keep all your test scores confidential. Also, it will enable you to start courses and return to finish at a later point in time.
