If you want to place any library materials on hold, request a book from another library, or check out any physical library materials out you will need to have your NSCC ID. 


What is my NSCC ID card number? (This is for checking out physical library materials)

Your NSCC ID card number is the 14-digit number beginning with 21991 on the bottom of your NSCC student ID. This is used for checking materials out of the library, using reserve materials, requesting a book from another library, placing library materials on hold, and checking your library account online. 

What is my online catalog password?

Your default online catalog password is your birth date. Enter in format: MMDDYYYY.

How do I get a NSCC Student ID?

Stop by the Student Life Office in Danvers (DB 132) or Lynn (LW 171) with a current class schedule and a government issued photo ID to receive your NSCC ID. If you are a distance student, follow these online instructions.

How do I activate my NSCC ID for Library use?

Your ID is activated once your classes start. 

I am getting a barcode invalid login error.

Call the NSCC Libraries (978-762-4002). You may need your password to be reset.

I am getting a cookies error message, what does that mean?
