Graduate and Continuing Studies Library Orientation

This guide will help you navigate through all the resources your Muskingum University Library has available for Graduate and Continuing Studies students and faculty.

How can I access library resources if I'm not on campus?

When off-campus, you may need to verify that you attend Muskingum University when utilizing resources available via the Library's webpage. You will be prompted to log in, which you can do utilizing your Muskingum barcode and your name.

If you do not have a physical Muskingum ID, which has the barcode printed on the back (it's a long number that starts with 28153), you should have received your barcode in an email from GCS. If you cannot find that email, please contact the library, by phone or chat, to request your barcode.

Where is my barcode number?

Your barcode number is located on the back of your Muskingum University ID, directly below the barcode.

It is 14 digits long and will always begin with '28153'.

My barcode number isn't working. What do I do?

First, check to be sure you're using the right number. Your barcode number is 14 digits long and will start with '28153'.

If you are using the correct number and it still isn't working, you'll need to contact a librarian to have your account re-activated. Accounts are reset every semester, and a number of things, including transferring and late registration, can cause your account to be missed.

Just send us an email at library@, call us at (740) 826-8260, or talk with us via chat and we'll get your account fixed ASAP.
