Q. How do I get a library card?


University of Idaho faculty, staff, and students use the Vandal Card as their library card and their University of Idaho username and password to:

  • Access library databases from anywhere in the world
  • Borrow books, DVDs and other library materials
  • View library account information
  • Use Interlibrary Loan

For distance education and Independent Study students, and off campus faculty and staff: If you don't have a Vandal ID card, you should apply for a Library ID number by filling out this online form. Please allow 24 hours (Monday through Friday) for the process to be completed. For Interlibrary Loan Requests, a library barcode number is still needed. If you do not have a Vandal Card, please call 208-885-6843 or email libill@uidaho.edu to receive a barcode number.

Guest privileges are available to: Idaho residents with photo ID (residents under 18 years old must have parent or guardian willing to establish a parent/child account); WSU faculty, staff, and students with WSU ID.
