Professional Personnel of Illinois State and Federal Governmental Agencies

Illinois State and Federal Government employees doing work-related research may apply for a Borrower’s Card*, valid for three months, if they present:

  1. a letter of request from their organization that accepts financial responsibility;
  2. one piece of ID with a current Chicago metropolitan area address;
  3. a $50.00 fee for three months of borrowing privileges; and
  4. additional documentation may be required, contact the Main Library Circulation Desk at 847-491-7633 or circulation@northwestern.edu to inquire.

*Borrower's cards do not grant patrons access to NU Library's online databases, which require the use of a NetID. NUIT assigns NetIDs only to current NU students, faculty, and staff members. Any library guest can request a free temporary NetID (or "day pass") for use on the premises (see the Guest NetIDs page for where to request one).
