Borrow, Renew, Request: UO Undergraduates
Your UO ID card is your library card. Enrolled students are eligible to borrow for one term past their last registered term. UO ID cards are valid at all UO Libraries as well as at Summit libraries.
Keep track of due dates, renew your books, and place requests in your Library Accounts. Courtesy reminders and other notices are emailed to uoregon addresses only.
A DuckID account is required for access to Interlibrary Loan and Blackboard.
