Registering with the Rutgers Libraries

To begin using the Libraries and borrow books you need to register with the Libraries.  You’ll need your Rutgers NetID and library barcode (if you have one).  If you don’t have a barcode, one will be assigned   Guest and affiliate users will also be issued a PIN.  .

Rutgers NetID: The username associated with your Rutgers email account. Barcode: The 14-digit number beginning with '29030' ,'25145', ‘23008’ or ‘24008’ found on the back of your ID or RUConnection Card.
PIN:  a 4-digit personal identification number issued to guest and affiliate borrowers who need PINs to use "My Library Account" and for off-campus access if they are eligible.  Rutgers students, faculty, and staff use their NetIDs for online library services and do not need PINs.

You can register your barcode or get a PIN immediately by visiting or phoning the Circulation Desk of any Rutgers library.

Or, you can submit a request to a team of Rutgers Libraries staff by filling out the "Registering with the Rutgers Libraries" form. You will normally receive a registration confirmation within 48 hours, excluding weekends and holidays.
