My Library Account

How Do I Check My Account?

My Library is your account in the Hiram College Library catalog. 

Checking your account starts with logging into the Hiram Library Catalog which allows you to find information on:

  • Checked out books (and see their due dates).
  • Your contact and address information.
  • Your current amount of Fines.
  • The status of any book requests.

As well as providing access to features such as:

  • Saving searches for future use.
  • Saving lists of books to email/export.
  • Renewing checked out materials to extend their due date.

Begin checking your account by going to the Hiram College Library Catalog homepage which appears below.

This will take you to a screen that looks like the one below, where you can use your first & last name plus your Barcode # to login.

If you are unsure as to how to find your barcode, detailed information can be found in the Your Library Barcode tab above. 

If you log in successfully you will be at a screen that looks like this below. 


If you are still having trouble, you can visit the library front desk or give us a call at (330)-569-5489 during business hours.

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 your Banner ID.

Your Hiram ID should come to you with a Barcode already on it. If not, please visit the Ask Here 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 email with your name, barcode number, and student ID or visit the Ask Here Desk. 
    • 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 please let us know so we can update number in our system. 
    • If your Barcode becomes too worn to read, please visit the Ask Here Desk in the library for a new one.

Are you a first year or transfer student? Never used the Hiram College Library? Before you check out books, we need to update your library account with the barcode on the back of your student ID. 

Please visit the Ask Here desk on the first floor any time with your student ID and ask to have your barcode added to your account. You can then check out physical items and OhioLINK eBooks. 

If you are unable to access the library building, please email with your name, phone number, Hiram Student ID number (on the front of your ID), and the number on the barcode on the back of your ID. We will update your account within 1 business day.
