What Numbers Do I Use?
We are really hoping to see “single sign-on” for everything at Bank Street, but until then, this is what you need to know. Once you have your ID card and get a 14 digit library issued barcode it’s all plain sailing 🙂
- Above is a typical ID card with a student’s ID number in the top left-hand corner.
- Underneath the photo is the student’s full name
- When you bring your ID card to the circulation desk, staff will place a 14 digit barcode on the back.
- The numbers printed on the card are only useful for faculty.

When asked for your 14 digit library barcode enter the 14 digits on the barcode on the back of your ID card (3). If you have been given a cohort access code enter that.

Your username is your 14 digit library barcode (3). The password is changeme.
Your instructor will email you the password. Spoiler alert: there is a lot of clicking to do – keep at it and you’ll get there.
your username is the first part of your Bank Street email address. Usually it is the first letter of your first name and your last name (i.e., everything before the @ mark of your bankstreet email address). In the example about Joanne Student’s username would be jstudent (2). The password is your student ID, in the example above it would be 654123 (1).
If you are faculty, your username is the first part of your Bank Street email address. Your password is the 5 or 6 digit found on the back of your ID card (4).
Parents and guests ask for a print access card.
