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 Card, you can 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. 

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.
