How do I get off-campus access to resources?

Off-campus access to online resources is reserved for students, faculty, and staff of Tiffin University. For off-campus, online access, you only need to know your Tiffin User name and password. This is the same username and password used to access campus computers, self-service, and Moodle.

Select resources may ask you for your last name and barcode. Your library barcode is your university ID number followed by TUP (Example: 000123456TUP).

What if I don't remember my username and password?

Your username is just the first part of your email address. ITS will be happy to assist with forgotten usernames or passwords. However, passwords can be reset online.

What is your library barcode?

Your library barcode is used for accessing your library account, requesting items, checking out materials, and accessing select resources off-campus. It is your university ID number followed by TUP (Example: 000123456TUP).

How do I get a library barcode?

Your library barcode is your university ID number followed by TUP. For example, Joe Smith with a university ID number of 000123456 would have a library barcode of 000123456TUP. If you are unsure of your university ID number, you can visit self-service>My Profile>Account Information. You can also contact the library at

TU visitors can obtain a library card by visiting the circulation desk with a photo ID.

What do I do if I'm told my account is expired?

If you try to use your library barcode and you receive a message saying your account is expired, contact your librarian. S/He will verify your university status and extend your expiration date.

As long as you are teaching or attending classes at TU, though, your library barcode should be up-to-date extending to the end of your current course.
