Borrower IDs

The Cougar Card, issued by ID Card Services, functions as a library card. It does not display the library borrower ID. Patrons need the borrower ID to request materials as well as to renew them in the library online catalog. Your library borrower ID is in the following format:

24211 followed by your nine-character "H number."
EXAMPLE: 24211H88888888.

Contact Access Services (708) 209-3050, toll free (866) 733-8287 if your Cougar Card does not work as the borrower ID.

Delivery of Books, Dissertations and AV Materials to Out of State Students

Since you are off campus, it is important for you to check out your local public, academic, or research libraries before submitting delivery requests to the Klinck Memorial Library. This may reduce turnaround time.

To request books, dissertations, and AV materials found in the Library Catalog, I-Share, or in others miscellaneous sources click here. I-Share is a catalog that provides information about the collections of 86 academic and research libraries in Illinois.

Books, dissertations, and AV materials can be delivered to borrowers and returned to the Klinck Memorial Library via mail. Borrowers are responsible for return postage and for materials lost in the mail.
