Library Cards


Colorado State University students’ RamCard is their official library card and can be used to checkout books, devices, and more.

Faculty & Staff

Faculty and staff also use their RamCard to checkout items from the library.

Faculty and staff can authorize another person to checkout materials to their account. Visit the Faculty/Staff Authorization page for instructions on how to request authorizations.

Community Patrons

Community patrons can apply for a library card at the Morgan Library Loan & Reserve Desk. Minors 11 and older can apply for a library card with a parent/guardian co-signature. Community patrons must be residents of Colorado and provide proof with a current State Driver’s License or State ID Card. Cards are non-transferable and must be renewed every year.

Visiting/Affiliate Faculty/Scholars

Library privileges may be granted to visiting scholars and other university affiliates. Visit the Affiliates page for more information.

Conference Borrowers

Summer conference attendees may request temporary access to CSU Library services. Contact the Loan & Reserve Desk for more information.

Poudre River Public Library District Card

CSU students, faculty, and staff can use their RamCard as a PRPLD public library card by opting-in to a joint program offered by CSU and PRPLD.
