Learning about your Card
The Clipper Card utilizes the latest technologies to provide access to goods and services. The First Stop Office manages a number of databases to assign privileges and maintain accounts.
The magnetic stripe on the back of the card is encoded with user information that when passes through a reader checks account balance or assigned privileges.
The barcode on the front of the card is utilized for University of Maine System library access. The red number printed below the barcode is for your use in accessing on-line library services. Your barcode must be activated at one of the library circulation desks to allow complete library privileges.
The blue number printed on the front of the card is the card identification number.
