What's My Barcode

Requesting materials to resources from OhioLINK will require you to enter a Library issued Barcode in order to access the sites.  The Barcode and your name should be all that you need to access any resources provided by Hiram College Library.

Your Barcode is the 14 digit number starting with 25223 on the back of your Hiram ID card. (See Below) Be sure you are not attempting to request materials using the number on the front, which is the Banner ID and completely different from the library's number.

Your Hiram ID should come to you with a Barcode already on it. If not, please visit the Circulation (front) desk in the library to obtain one.

Regardless, you will need to make sure the library has your Barcode in its database. You may do this by:

  • Clicking on the Check My Library Account link and attempting to log in. If you are able to do so, you are in the library's database and are good to go.  
    • If you get an error message, please contact Terri Foy by email at or by calling 330-569-5359
    • If you lose your Hiram ID you must obtain a new one at Campus Safety in the Kennedy Center. You may also contact them by email at or by phone at 330-469-4119.  
      • Once you have a new card and Barcode you MUST inform the library as we will need the new number in our system. 
    • If your Barcode becomes too worn to read, please come to the Circulation (front) desk in the the library to obtain a new one.
