Library Barcode

You can use your library barcode number to:

  • Request books through OhioLINK and SearchOhio.
  • Access your library account to renew your books online and keep tabs on items you have requested and checked out.
  • Access databases from outside of the campus network.

There are two places you can look to find your library barcode number:

  1. On the back of your Witt ID. It's a 14 digit number that begins with 251 in tiny scrunched up numbers under the barcode.
  2. Using Internet Explorer, log into MyWitt and look for the tab that says "Campus Tools" or "Account Tools". You will see a link to "Display Library ID Number".

If you are still having trouble, please contact the library.
