Library-issued patron cards only provide on-site check-out privileges; they do not include access to licensed databases, nor do they include access to our Interlibrary Loan services. With the exception of proxies, patrons may only have one active library card at a time. The patron to whom a card is issued is the only person authorized to use it; patrons should not lend their cards to others.
Obtain your visitor privilege card from any campus library or at Circulation Services in the Interlibrary Loan office, Room 246 in the HSSE Library, Stewart Center. Privilege cards are valid for one year and may be renewed upon request by borrowers in good standing.
