Using New 10-digit University Student ID (USID) to Login to Your Library Account (Effective July 1, 2010)

The Steering Committee on the Development of CUSIS has announced that student ID number will change from an 8-digit to a 10-digit format. The new 10-digit University Student ID (USID) will come into effect on July 1, 2010. Details of the change are available from the CUSIS website.

To align with the change, effective July 1, 2010, all students (except students graduating in July/Aug 2010) should use their new 10-digit USID when they login to their library account to use library resources.

  1. Since current students will not be requested to replace their CU Link cards due to the change of USID format (please refer to CUSIS for details), current students with CU Link card issued before July 2010 (except students graduating in July/Aug 2010) are reminded to enter "10" in front of the ID printed on their CU Link card (e.g. instead of 08123456, enter 1008123456) to login to their library account.
  2. For other library users (including students graduating in July/Aug 2010), they can continue to enter the ID no. printed on their Student/Staff/Library card to login into their library account.
As a result of the CUSIS' One-Student-One-ID policy, current students who are now holding more than one USID due to enrolling in different programmes will be assigned one USID only. These students should note that the latest USID assigned may not be the one they selected originally to use the Library with. If this is the case, they need to go to the CU Link Card Centre to update their CU Link card before they can use the Library.
