Q. How do I find my Library barcode and/or PIN?


Your Library barcode and PIN are the details you need to log into your account on the Library catalogue.

Your Library PIN:

  • Birkbeck students should use the last four numbers of their student number (8 digit number found above the barcode on your ID card).
  • Birkbeck staff should use 2012
  • Everyone else (alumni; SCONUL Access users and members of other universities) should use 4321

Your Library barcode number is printed on your Birkbeck ID card, below the barcode. It is a 10 digit number.

For students it is 020XXXXXXX

For staff it is 030XXXXXXX

For visitors it is 060XXXXXXX
