Library Cards

UDM Community

To borrow library materials, all faculty, staff, and students must acquire a valid UDM ID card from the Titan Information Center on the first floor of the University Center on the McNichols Campus. The photo ID has multiple purposes, one of which is its service as the UDM library card. The card must be activated in order for a student or faculty member to be able to check out library resources. To activate a card at the Check Out & Customer Service Desk:

  • Full time faculty present their UDM photo ID
  • A student presents the UDM photo ID with a term validation sticker or bursar's receipt

    Current part-time or adjunct faculty can obtain a library card by presenting a valid driver's license or pictured state ID card with their contract letter from the appropriate Dean or a letter of introduction from their department chairperson or Dean printed on University stationery.

    Non-UDM Community

    Non-UDM users must register for a library card at the Check Out & Customer Service Desk in the McNichols Campus Library.

    Affiliates, Infopass users, guest borrowers, reciprocal borrowers, and community borrowers must present a valid photo (e.g., driver's license or state ID) card when applying for a library card. Infopass users may substitute their home institutional photo ID. Alumni must show proof of graduation from UD, MCD, or UDM.

    General Information about the Library Card

    Card holder is responsible for all materials borrowed on their card and agrees to abide by all UDM libraries' policies and procedures.

    It is the patron's responsibility to report to the library Circulation Department any change of address or lost card. Lost cards should be immediately reported to the Check Out & Customer Service Desk at either library in person or by calling 313 993-1795 in the McNichols Campus Library or 313 494-6901 in the Dental Library.

    Guest and community borrowers are charged an annual non-refundable user fee of $50.00.

    Card Replacement Cost

    The charge for replacing a UDM photo ID card at the Titan Information Center is $20.00.

    The replacement charge for a non-UDM borrower's card is $10.00.
