Welcome to USM! Checkout our Transfer Student Guide (link below) to get started on familiarizing yourself with what the Libraries have to offer: articles, books, e-books, how to search, how to evaluate sources, creating a bibliography, printing, copying, joining a book club, and more.

Your USM ID card has your Library barcode on it and it is the number beginning with 250... or 218...

Feel free to stop by any campus Library for in-person assistance or use Ask A Librarian to contact us by phone, text, or email.
