If you reach the Valencia Database page through a link in Canvas or a professor's website instead of going through Atlas, you will be asked to enter a Borrower ID and pin number.
Your Borrower ID is the number on the back of your Valencia ID card. Most often, this number is your VID number. (On cards issued prior to August 12, 2008, you will see a 14-digit barcode number instead.) If you do not yet have a Valencia ID, enter your VID number as the Borrower ID.
Your PIN is the last four digits of your VID number.
