Library Barcode

Why should you take the time to get a Library Barcode for your Kean photo ID card? Well, the Barcode will enable you to check out books, access the Library's E-book collection (130,000 titles and growing), and search the Library's research databases from off-campus. It only takes a few minutes. Click here to find out how to get your Barcode.
