Accessing StFX Resources

Your StFX ID is your Library Card. All students, staff and faculty must have the barcode number (21993...) from their ID card, also referred to as your Novanet number, before beginning the library registration process. Library accounts for students expire every September 30th and need to be updated at the start of each academic year to ensure continued access to all library services.

Graduate or undergraduate distance students not able to obtain an ID card in person can e-mail StFX Safety & Security Services at Please include:

  • A high quality picture to be used on your ID card
  • A scan of government issued photo ID
  • Your StFX Student ID number
  • Your current mailing address
  • A request to have them e-mail you your Novanet number (barcode) right away 

Activating your Library Card

Once you have your StFX ID card, or you have followed the steps above to get your Novanet number (barcode), submit the Graduate Students Registration form to activate your account.
