Getting Started with Library Research

A brief introduction to resources for those new to library research.

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. Log into Self Service and click on your username on the top right of the screen, then select "User Profile". You will see a barcode with your library barcode number underneath.

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

My Account

Log in to your library account to see what books you have checked out, when they are due, and the status of books that you have requested through OhioLINK and SearchOhio. You will need your name and barcode number to log in.
