Accessing Library Resources On or Off Campus

Accessing library resources requires the 14-digit number located on the back of your student ID card.  If you do not have an ID card, follow these steps:

  1. Locate your student number on your class schedule upper left hand corner.
  2. Choose which is your home campus:
    Calmar Students: 23263
    Peosta Students: 25110
  3. Combine campus number first then your student number. If this formula does not make 14 digits, then add zero's after the campus number. Example: 25110+0XXXXXX then add two zeros after the campus number: 25110000XXXXXX. Learn more about Borrower ID information.
