Policies on this page pertain to current UO faculty & staff, faculty & staff who have formally retired from the university, and faculty from institutions with which we have reciprocal circulation agreements.
Your UO ID card is your library card. Visiting faculty will need to show photo ID and log in to their institutional accounts to borrow.
UO faculty may name a proxy to checkout materials in their name.
- Borrower responsibilities:
You are responsible for knowing the due date of library material that is checked out to you, and for returning material on time
