Registering with the Rutgers Libraries

To begin using the Libraries you will need your Rutgers NetID. Books can be checked out using the barcode on the back of your RU Connection Card. Guest and affiliate users without a barcode will be assigned one, and these guests/affiliates 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.
