Library Services

Borrowing/Remote Access to Databases

These two services are mentioned together because both depend on your USM card and its barcode. Your library barcode is the small red number at the bottom beginning with 2502200. To get remote access to USM Library databases, you must have your barcode activated.  Don't know if your barcode number has been activated and is working? From the library's home page, click My Library Record and try to login. Doesn't work? Call or come to the library Access Services Department at any of our campuses.

Library Research Assistance

Reference librarians and Reference assistants are available to give you expert help with any question that you may have about locating information for your library research assignments. We are eager to help you find the best resources available and to find them quickly. To contact us:
