Printer-friendly versionSend by email


Professional staff of non-profit organizations (cultural, religious, scientific, or medical institutions in the Chicago metro area), doing research for those institutions 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 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 Guest NetIDs).
