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: Vandal Cards can be mailed to individuals that would like them as long as they have an active affiliation with the U of I. The Vandal Card Request form will ask what campus you attend and whether you would like to receive your Vandal Card in person or by mail. It also has a place to submit a photo for the card. 

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), and to WSU faculty, staff, and students with WSU ID.
