How to Get a Library Card

Currently enrolled students are automatically set-up with a library account and renewed each semester they are enrolled in classes. Students should use a picture IRSC id to check-out items and use the computers at Miley Library. Community members may apply for borrowing privileges or use the computers with a valid, government issued, picture id. Non-students under the age of 18 are not permitted to use the computers, but may apply for a library card with parental consent.
