Library Password (PIN), MCards, and UMID Numbers
The Library Password (PIN) will have to be used when you wish to access licensed research databases, online journals, and other electronic resources from off campus; place a hold by using the “Request” button; or access My Library Account.
MCards and UMID Numbers
MCard (UM-Dearborn photo ID) is required for checking out any library materials, renewing materials, and paying fines and fees. UMID numbers (printed on your MCard) are required for off campus access to library online resources, and to place Interlibrary Loan and MelCat requests. You can get your MCard at the University Center Information Desk.
