Q. Why does it ask me for a Baker College library number when I am using the database at home?
The Baker library databases ask for a library card number (from your ID Card) to log in when off-campus because:
- They need to verify that you are a student.
- Students are entitled to have access to the resources contained in the databases.
- The database providers limit access to their content to organizations who have paid for a subscription to the information.
When you are on campus, the databases recognize that you are logged in from a Baker College computer, so they know you are a student even though you do not have to enter your library card number.
To find your Library Number online:
- Go to MyBaker
- Select Login Assistance
You will find your UIN, Equitrac (printing number) and Library number there.
Thank you for using ASK US. For other questions, contact your Campus Library/ARC.
