Your public library barcode number is the long string of digits under the barcode on either the front or back of your library card. Please enter the numbers/digits without any spaces.

Why am I being asked for my Minnesota public library barcode number?
If your computer's Internet address is recognized as a Minnesota address, you will have immediate access to ELM resources. If your Internet address is not recognized or you are trying to access a resource with contractual restrictions, you will need a library card from a participating Minnesota Public Library belonging to a regional public library system.
