Log on to your account in the catalog. Select "User Account," which is the bottom tab on the right of any of the Your Account pages. In the Library Account Information section toward the bottom of the User Account page, enter your new barcode number in the space marked "Borrower ID (Barcode Number)."

Your borrower Id is your Lewis ID number with the numbers 24311 added to the beginning. For example, if my Lewis ID is L11012345, my borrower ID would be 24311L11012345.

After you enter your new borrower ID, click submit. If you see "Changes were applied" at the top of the page, then you are all set. If not, please contact the Library Service Desk at 815-836-5300 for assistance.
