Library Accounts

From Help Wiki

Students, Faculty, and Staff

Evergreen automatically creates a library user/borrower account for students who join the college. Your library card is your current Evergreen ID. The first time you use your library card, folks at the Circulation Desk will request that you confirm your contact information.

Account holders may borrow from the library's physical collections - books, maps, cds, dvds, and other stuff - and use online services. Online services include searching the catalog, reserving materials, and accessing subscription databases of academic literature.

Some online services are password protected, including subscription databases when used off campus. Your full name and registration number, exactly as they appear on your ID card, count as your username and password in all library account matters.

Accounts are audited every six months. Accounts for users who remain at the college are renewed; those who have left will be converted to community borrower. Our beloved emeritus faculty retain their institutional accounts throughout retirement.

Community Borrowers

Those without an official affiliation with Evergreen may establish a community borrower's account. Necessary identification includes a photo ID and a document that shows a current address - a personal check, phone bill, etc. Community borrowers may borrow books but not films, Illiad or Summit. You can also use a card from the Washington State Library or Saint Martin's College (but not a Timberland Library card).

Community users may temporarily access subscription databases from computers within the library. Community accounts are also audited every six months.

Extended Education Students

EE does not involve admission to the college. EE students may establish and use library accounts as community borrowers.
