Registering with the Library

Registering with the Library

As a registered Cape Breton University student you first have to register your myCBUcard and the barcode on the bottom of it with the library before you can borrow material. This ensures that we have the correct address and contact information for you. If you do not have your myCBUcard, you may obtain one at the Marvin Harvey Building, Room B190.

Distance students without a myCBUcard may contact Samantha Delaney to obtain a barcode. You will require a barcode to obtain library services.
