I'm assuming that your are asking about the Keystone Library Network PASS (Patron Authentication System) screen that you get when accessing one of our databases from an off-campus computer. This is the system that verifies that a user is an IUP user and has priviledges for that database. There are two entry blocks on the PASS page. For IUP, you use the block on the left. The "Library barcode or Identification" is the 16-digit number on your I-card. It's the one that starts 60083901...., not the "@.." Banner number. Then you also enter your last name. The system will check the library patron file to verify that you are a valid user and then pass you to on the database you selected. If you've tried logging in with the 16-digit number and the system is not letting you in to the database, please let us know.
