Library Cards

Fogler Library accepts several types of ID cards or library cards. All ID barcodes must be linked to a valid record in our database before services (e.g. book check-out, online database access, requesting materials through URSUS) can be used.

Library Barcode Number

MaineCardWhether you are issued a new 2016 MaineCard (left) or are still using your classic MaineCard (middle) the library barcode number is printed on the back of your card (right), below the barcode, and starts with “25022”. This number is ONLY used by Fogler Library. The library is part of a statewide system that uses its own identification numbering scheme. University of Maine community members will use this number to access library resources.
