What is the W-number?
As of December 20th, the UW Libraries will accept WyoOne identification cards for circulation and photocopying purposes by University students, faculty, and staff. The “W-number” printed on the front of the ID cards is used for borrowing Prospector items (What is Prospector?) from other participating libraries. Library users that are still using their CampusExpress card are encouraged to replace them with a WyoOne card as soon as possible and then destroy the older cards since they are encoded with users’ Social Security numbers. This is a campus-wide changeover so all campus agencies will now require the WyoOne card for identification. For more information check the University’s WyoOne website.
Library users that have a library-issued identification card (entitled “University of Wyoming, the University Libraries” and with a barcode) will not be affected by this changeover.
If you have questions about the changeover of ID cards by the Libraries, please contact Coe Library Circulation at 307-766-3190.
