You can get an IUP community library card. These can be obtained at the I-Card office at the HUB for a small, one-time fee. You would then need to have the card validated at the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor of Stapleton Library to make sure your account is in the system.

This card would allow you to borrow books and would also serve as a vending card for photocopying or printing services within the library. Community card holders are able to access electronic databases from within the library itself, but our contracts with the database providers do not allow access from off-campus.
