Last Updated: Oct 05, 2023     Views: 1269

First, you need to have a USM ID card. All students, whether full-time or taking just one online class, should get their USM ID card.

When you enroll at USM, you will receive an email from photosubmission in your email. Use that to upload information and a photo. If you did not receive a photosubmission email, contact Card Services.

Your Library Barcode is the number on your USM ID Card that begins with 250.... or 218.... Your Library Barcode should automatically be activated, but feel free to stop by any Library or call us (207-780-4270) and we'll activate it, if needed. You should be able to see your Library barcode when you login to MyUSM Portal, click on Academics, then click on Libraries. You should see your USM ID Card photo, student ID number, and Library Barcode.

We recommend that all students get a USM ID Card in order to take full advantage of Library resources. You will need your which is used for accessing online materials, borrowing materials from USM and other libraries, borrowing textbooks on reserve, printing, copying, scanning, and other services.
