You will need to provide one of the following as proof of identification. (Credit students: You will also need your Student ID Number/H Number.)
Please visit the Circulation Desk located on the second floor of the Library and present a photo ID that verifies your name, address and age (see What document(s) do I need to register...). You will be asked to fill out a registration form. NOTE: ID/Library cards are available ONLY until 1/2 hour before closing.
