Ask a Librarian

Q: How do I get a library barcode? What is my library barcode?

A: A Healey Library barcode allows you to check out books and other items from Healey Library as well as request books and articles through the library’s interlibrary loan service. (Note: your Healey Library barcode is different from your student ID or UMS number.) Your barcode is located on the back of your BeaconCard; it’s most likely a 6-digit number immediately following a plus sign (+) or asterisk (*), but some IDs may look different. Before you can use your barcode, it will need to be activated, so bring your BeaconCard to the Healey Library Circulation Desk at the second floor main entrance and ask to have your barcode activated.
