Students, Staff and Faculty

Borrowing materials from the library is simple. Your Buff One Card works as your library card. If you don’t have one, you can present your photo ID.


Public Patrons

Cards (75.00/year charge; $65.00 for seniors 65 and older) are issued at the Circulation Desk in Norlin Library: 303-492-7477


Research Assistants Proxy Card

CU Boulder faculty and staff may authorize a representative to check out materials on their account. A proxy card will be issued upon presentation of a signed letter on letterhead stationary which states the representative's name and ID number, and the professor's name and ID number.

Questions may be directed to the Norlin Circulation Desk, phone: 303-492-7477.
