Finding your UNE ID card number or PRN

Some library services require your UNE ID card number or PRN to access. Here are some tips on finding these numbers.


Your UNE ID Card has a small barcode at the bottom along with a 14 digit number beginning with 2523200. This 14 digit number is your UNE ID card number. You can use this number as your library card to log into cloudLibrary for e-books and audiobooks, register for an Interlibrary Loan account or request items from MaineCat.


Online students may not have a UNE ID card and can use a PRN instead – these two numbers are interchangeable for accessing library services.

Find your PRN

You can look up your PRN in U-Online

You can also get your PRN from your UNE ID card number:

  1. Remove the first 7 digits (2523200) from the 14 digit number on your UNE ID card above the barcode
  2. Remove the last digit from the 14 digit number on your UNE ID card
  3. add 910 in front of the remaining 6 digits

The PRN for the ID in this photo would be 910123456
