All students should obtain a Widener University ID from the Campus1Card Office in the Enrollment Services Center in Lipka Hall. The barcode on the back of the ID is needed to access the library's databases from off-campus. (Students enrolled ONLY in distance education programs can complete the Request for a Library Research Card to gain off-campus access to the library's databases.)

Off Campus Access

You will be required to enter the 14-digit barcode (starts with "2318") from the back of your Widener ID Card or Library Research Card to access databases from Off Campus.

If you do not have a Widener ID please make arrangements with the Campus1Card office 610-499-4145 to obtain one.

If you are only registered in a distance education program contact the Campus1Card office 610-499-4145 for details.
