The Basics

     Do you have a Library barcode?

A library barcode serves as your Pace Library Card and allows you to request items from other Pace Library locations and to request books from Connect NY.

If you do not have a barcode, you can get one at the Circulation/Front Desk in your home campus Library:

  • The Birnbaum Library is on the New York City campus, (212) 346-1332
  • The Mortola Library is on the Pleasantville campus, (914) 773-3380
  • The Law Library is on the White Plains campus, (914) 422-4273

NOTE: You can also request your barcode via email. Use your barcode to renew items or check the status of requested items online:

Books & Articles


For expediency, check your local library system first, then search Pace Catalog (click Books & Media tab).  Pace books (except Law Library) can be requested for one month loan period with two renewals if needed; you must indicate your course or program.  If you're within 50 miles of Pleasantville or New York City campuses or if you've any in person classes on campus then you're to pick up the book at the campus closest to you.   Any Pace book mailed out to you must be insured for $100 upon mailing it back to Pace.  Contact Nadine MacDonald for possible shipping.  Interlibrary Loan books and ConnectNY books are not mailed.   For all other non-Pace books and books not available in your local library system, search Worldcat database and request through your local library Interlibrary Loan system.


To search for articles access the databases.  To determine which database to search you may browse by Subject.  When articles are not available in full text, request through ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan).  You must have a Pace Library Barcode number to register to use ILLiad.   If you need a barcode, send an email to barcodes and include your name, major, and U number.
