What Do I Need?
Where Do I Find My Library Barcode?
Your library barcode is on the back of your BHCC OneCard. It is 14 digits long and begins with a 2.
If you do not have your OneCard, we can give you a temporary barcode. Bring your temporary ID and a copy of your schedule to the library's Lending Services Desk.
Where Do I Get a Library Password?
If you know your barcode and have an email address in your library account, you can reset your password by email here. If you don’t know your barcode or don’t receive the email, come to the Lending Services Desk in the library.
What Do I Do With This Information?
When you try to use the library databases from home, you will see a page that asks for your barcode and password. Type these in the boxes and press Submit.
If you log in once, you should stay logged in for a little while. However, if you leave the computer for a long period of time, or if you shut down or put your computer to sleep, you will need to sign in again.
How Do I Get Help?
If you are unable to log into the databases from home, please come in, call, or email us ASAP.
