Borrow, Renew, Request:  UO Faculty

Your UO ID card is your library card.    UO ID cards are valid at all UO Libraries as well as at Summit libraries.   We have arranged reciprocal borrowing with many other academic 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. 

UO faculty may name a proxy to checkout materials in their name.
