Activate Your Library Card by June 10

You may not know this, but each semester when you use your library card (that is, your student ID) for the first time, we "activate" it. It won't give you the power to transform into a bird or take the form of a glacier, but activation does empower you to use your library card for things like checking out books, checking your online library account, and using interlibrary loan.

Normally, you could activate your library card any time during the semester, but since we are switching over to a new library system in mid-June, and things will be utter chaos in transition for a while, we need to get you activated early or you may not be able to check out books later in the summer. Please bring your library card to the Circulation desk on the 1st floor of the library by June 10 so that we can activate it before it's too late.

** This only applies to students. Faculty and staff do not need to get their cards activated each semester.**

does this apply to faculty and staff also?

Thanks for asking, anonymous. It's only students who need to get their cards activated. I'll clarify this in the post.

a library card? is that the same as our student ID?

Yes, it is the same. Thanks for pointing it out. I'll also clarify that in the post. :)
