Library card number and password

Library card number

Barcode number on the library card, beginning with PS, PA, PG, PP, PZ or PE, depending on the user group.


  • The default password is your date of birth, in the form: DDMMYYYY (e.g. if you were born on 3 May 1991 then your password is: 03051991). In your own interest, please change the default password as soon as possible.
  • Change password
    You can access your library account via the catalogue of the University Library and change your password there.
    The new password must have at least 8, maximum 30 characters and contain a number and a special character (e.g. $, %, @, etc.).
  • Forgotten your password
    If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it in the UB catalogue via 'My library account'/'I forgot my password'. Alternatively, you can have the standard password (your date of birth) entered at the Local Lending desk by showing your library card.
