Library ID

You must have an up-to-date Library ID if you want to:

  • Check out books from the LCCC library.
  • Request library items through OhioLINK when not available at LCCC.
  • Use any research database from off-campus.

If you do not have a Library ID, or if your Library ID is not updated for the semester, stop at the CIRCULATION desk with a copy of your schedule. The front of the ID has a 14-digit number above the bar code that you will have to type when requesting materials through OhioLINK or trying to use research databases from an off-campus location. An updated ID should have a sticker on the back for the current semester.
