Your Library Barcode

Transcript – Your Library Barcode :
Hi Everyone, my name is Rebecca and I’m a Reference Librarian at Lehman College. I want to show you where you can get your barcode on your Lehman College ID. So you’re going to take out your ID. It’s a little blurry. And I want to put it closer to you. I don’t know if you’ll see it any better. You’ll see Library there. It’s hard to do this backwards. Library and then it starts with the number 2 and then you’ll enter all of your numbers. I’ve covered my numbers, but you’ll see yours and that’s what you’ll need to enter when you’re accessing any of our ebooks or articles from the library databases. Now to see a clearer view, I’m going to show you online where you can get that view. We’re going to go to Google, type in Lehman College, enter. Click on the Lehman College result. On the Lehman College website/webpage we will click on Library. And on the Library site, go to “Student Help.” And scroll down to where it says “Off Campus Access To E-Resources.” Click on that. This will give you more information on the barcode and it shows you a clearer picture here of where your barcode is going to be. And so thank you and I will see you soon. Bye.

Activate Your Library Barcode

Transcript – Activate Your Library Barcode for Off Campus Access to Library Resources:

Hi Everyone, my name is Rebecca and I’m a Reference Librarian at Lehman College and I want to show you what to do when you have to Activate your Barcode. You’ll need to activate your barcode when you’ve entered your barcode from your Library ID, from your Lehman College ID. The barcode is in the bottom. You’ve entered the numbers to access an ebook or to access a peer-reviewed article and you’ve entered the numbers perfectly and it’s still not letting you through. You’ll need to fill out a Report a Technical Problem Form. I’ll show you where to get that. On Google, type in Lehman College. Click on the Lehman College link. On the Lehman College website scroll to the top, click Library. Click Student Help, and them scroll down to Off Campus Access to EResources. Click on that tab. Scroll down a little bit and you’ll see it says, “To report a problem, please fill out the following form: report a technical problem.” You’re going to click on that, you’ll see the form, click Begin. Then fill out the information that’s required. Your name, your email, your affiliation, if you’re an undergraduate, graduate or faculty, student, what program you’re currently enrolled in, your EMPLID, Library Barcode, and what you’re trying to access, all that information, and once you fill that out click Submit. And that’s pretty much it. If you do not have your library ID, I recommend that when you go on the Lehman College site, then Library site, go back there again, under Student Help, go to Ask Us, and then I recommend to click on the 24/7 Chat. Put your name and email and ask your Question. If you do not have access to your physical library ID or you can’t access your Digital ID, which you all should have as well. And I’ll go into detail in the next video about that. So, thank you and I’ll see you soon. Bye.
