It is important to create a "real" account in NoodleTools to avoid getting locked out and losing your work. Use My Profile to confirm the information. REMEMBER your Personal ID.
Verify the Email, Initials, and Phone in your Profile before you have login issues and lose access to your work.

Once a year NoodleTools prompts users to revalidate their personal account. The purpose of revalidation is to verify that the user is still eligible to use the NWACC subscription.
This process is automatic if you log in to your account from a computer on campus or use the "official" link. However, if you sign in to your NoodleTools personal account with a saved bookmark or favorite link you may need to take action to revalidate.
Each year around August 1 when you "Sign In" to your account you may receive a message "revalidate your personal folder". Users can opt to "skip revalidation for now" for a few sessions before being locked out.

NoodleTools will send a password reset link to the email address in your NoodleTools account. Check your Spam/Junk Mail folder if the message does not show up in your Inbox.
When you select the "I forgot my password" link from the Sign In page you are taken to the "Retrieve Password" page.
If you make a mistake you will receive the error message "No account found matching this personal ID and email address." If this happens, contact the Library.
