Members of the community who are not current UO students, faculty, or staff may participate in the Oregon Card program, which allows borrowers to check out up to 10 items, place holds on items, and make interlibrary loan requests for a fee.
Renew your books by logging in to your LibrarySearch Account and select the items you want to renew. Most items in the general collection will auto-renew as long as no one else has requested the item. If your item does not auto-renew, you may contact the Checkout/Reserves desk at 541-346-3065 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of the libraries on the Eugene campus have printers for UO students, faculty, and staff to use. Follow the steps on this webpage to print from a library computer or your own laptop. You will need to have your UO ID card charged up with Duck Bucks to pay for your print job. Community members can purchase a print card and add Duck Bucks at the kiosk near the Checkout/Reserves Desk in Knight Library
You can access your UO Library account through the library’s website. Look for the link near the top of the screen that says Library Accounts. You can log in using your DuckID (for UO affiliates) or your guest ID (for Oregon Card holders and other registered guest users). More information about all of the library accounts is available here: https://library.uoregon.edu/library-accounts
If the library does not have the article you need, you may request it through interlibrary loan (ILL). Access the UO Libraries page and select the “Library Accounts” tab on the toolbar at the top of the page. Click on “ILLiad Account (Interlibrary Loan)” and log in with your DuckID. Once logged in, on the right-side menu select Interlibrary Services > Article/Book Chapter Request. Fill out the form with as much of the citation information as you can. Once completed, click “Submit Request.” You will get an email when the article is available, which takes 1-3 days.
Visit the UO Libraries page and select the “Library Accounts” tab on the pale green toolbar at the top of the page. Click on “LibrarySearch Account” and log in with your DuckID. Once logged in, you will see three columns, and the middle column provides your requests and their statuses.
Requests for books and other physical items located in the UO Libraries generally take 1-3 days to fulfill. Library patrons will be notified by email when the item is ready for pickup. For more information and other pickup options, see our Pickup and Delivery Options.
Yes, there are two options. 1) You can borrow books, DVDs, and other items through the Summit system, which is made up of member libraries in the Northwest. Use LibrarySearch (http://library.uoregon.edu) to find and request items. 2) You can also request books, DVDs, and journal articles through interlibrary loan. Interlibrary loan allows you to borrow items beyond our region. Use WorldCat (https://uolibraries.on.worldcat.org/) to find and request items, or go directly to the ILLiad request sytem to enter what you need: https://illiad.uoregon.edu/illiad/oru/logon.html
For newly graduated seniors, their account is still active for six months. Borrowing (ILL and Summit) and off-campus database access are the same as if they were a student for the six months following graduation. For example, if you graduated in June, you have an active student account until December.
