24x7 F.A.Q.s

Q: How do I get my library barcode?

A: Contact the Library:(937) 328-6022, library@clarkstate.edu, or come to the Library on the Leffel Lane campus. At the Greene or Bellefontaine campuses please ask at the front desk.

Q: My barcode isn’t working.

A: The barcode is the 14-digit code on the back of your ID, starting with “251280…” Enter your name as it is registered with the college, which may include your middle initial or middle name.

Q: I’m having difficulty accessing OhioLINK, or OhioLINK is asking for a password (instead of barcode).

A: If you are off campus, click the “off campus” link. If your Student ID is older than three years, you will need to come in and update your ID.

Q: I’m not a student, can I still use OhioLINK resources?

A: Yes! Community members may use OhioLINK from a guest log-in at the Library. Ask at the Information Desk.
