What do I need to check out items from the library?

In order to use your borrowing privileges, you need to present a valid form of identification at check-out, such as the University OneCard for faculty, staff, or students, a borrower's card for visitors, or a state-issued picture identification card (e.g., a driver's license).

I'm a retired faculty/staff member or trustee, can I still check out items?

Retired faculty, staff, and trustees of UNCW may borrow materials from the collections upon presentation of a valid UNCW identification card.

  1. Visit the UNCW One Card Office in the Warwick Center to get a new retiree ID card made.
  2. Bring the new One Card to the Library’s Circulation Desk and request library access as a retiree. A staff member will set up a new account in our library system and that will enable your library access.
