Your first step in using the library is activating your Rebelcard barcode  and obtaining a library Personal Identification Nunber (PIN).
Your library PIN will be provided when you activate your RebelCard in person at the Lied Library Circulation Desk or at a branch library service desk. Online education students should view activation requirements .
Your library PIN offers the security of privacy protection and reduces risk of identity theft. Additionally, licensing restrictions required by the publishers who produce electronic resources require a secure sign on.
