Community LID Card Policy

A University Library ID (LID) card may be purchased for $5.00 at the Circulation Desk on the first floor. The LID card grants community members the following library services:

Computer Use, Printing and Photocopying

LID cardholders receive an e-account to log on to specific reference area computers on the second floor of the Library. This does not include the use of student computing labs. Upon initially logging on, you will be required to change your password. If this password becomes invalidated, it can be reset by asking a librarian for assistance, or contacting the Technology Help Desk and identifying yourself as an LID card holder.

Money may be added to the card at the Value Card Center stations on first floor to be used for printing (5c/page black and white, 20c/page color) and photocopying, at 5c/page.

Circulation, Prospector, and Interlibrary Loan

LID cardholders may check out up to ten (10) items at a time.

LID card ownership also provides the cardholder with Prospector and interlibrary loan service. LID patrons can request up to 70 items at a time from other Prospector libraries and cardholders may make up to ten (10) requests per month for items owned by other libraries via traditional interlibrary loan.

Database Access

Due to vendor licensing contracts, LID cards give access to the library’s subscription databases from on-campus only. Databases, with the exception of the library catalog, are unavailable to LID patrons from off-campus.

General Information

If an LID card is lost, library staff should be notified immediately. A replacement can be purchased for $5.00, and funds that were on the lost card can be transferred to the new one at Auxiliary Services, which is located in Room 102 of the Occhiato University Center.

Each user is limited to one card.

Immediate family of University faculty and staff and University retirees will receive an LID card at no charge.

The University Library does not use Internet filters. In order to use library computers users must agree to CSU-Pueblo’s Acceptable Use Policy for Technology Resources and Computer Account Policy, as well as the Library’s Computer and Internet Use Policy.
