Current students, faculty and staff MUST have a "library" barcode to use subscription index/databases offcampus. Campus security prints the number on the back of your campus ID, then you need to come to the library circulation desk and fill out a form to complete the process. NOTE: There are occasional problems with some IDs printed, please contact campus security if your library barcode does not have a ten-digit number. Security will reissue a new ID.
If you need additional help - MAIN library phone number: 766-3116; reference desk: 766-3135
