I can’t access the library databases from off-campus. What should I do?
Off campus, you must connect to the library’s databases and other resources by using your last name and the library barcode number on your USM card.Your barcode is the bottom number on your USM card that begins with 25022...
If you don't have a student card with this number, go to the Campus Card Services to get one. You may call 207-780-4270 or bring your USM ID card to the circulation desk at any of the USM Libraries to have your card activated.
If you are an online student and do not come on any campus, call 207-780-5600 or email Campus Card Services.
Alumni and Courtesy patrons do not have remote access to the databases. You may want to access Maine's statewide MARVEL databases instead.
Remember, USM patrons have access to Systemwide and USM resources, but not to resources that are non-USM (such as at Orono, Augusta, etc.).
