Library Computer Access Card Policy for Visitors

The Library Computer Access Card allows campus visitors to register for access to library computers. Licensed databases are available for use in the Library and on campus. The Library Computer Access Card does not allow the borrowing of library materials or remote ("off-campus") access to databases.

Computers must be used in accordance with the library computer use policy. Any violation may lead to loss of these privileges and forfeiture of your card.

For your protection, report any lost or stolen card immediately. When you have finished using a library computer, please log-off.

Obtaining a Library Computer Access Card

Campus visitors and the general public may register for a Library Computer Access Card at any Smathers Libraries service desk during library hours.

A photo ID and proof of current address must be presented to obtain a Library Computer Access card. Registration requires that the Libraries record your name, address, phone number, and email address (if available).

Use the 14-digit number on the card to access the library computers. You must bring this card with you each time you use library computers.

The card issued to you will be valid for six months from the date of issue and may be renewed at any Smathers Libraries service desk.
