Get a Library Card

Due to restrictions put in place from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to process new accounts at this time. We are working quickly to come up with a process for creating new accounts from off-campus. Please come back to this page for updates as they become available. If you have an existing account that needs to be updated, Ask Us.
  • Affiliate borrowers must present a USask library card to borrow materials or request services from the USask library. 
  • Your library card expires one year from the date of issue or at the end of the predefined terms of your employment.
  • If you lose your library card, let us know right away. We will freeze it to prevent anyone else from borrowing items under your name. For lost or damaged library-issued cards, Ask Us so that we can reissue you a new card.
  • Library notices are emailed or mailed to the address in your library account. It is your responsibility to provide the library with accurate contact information and keep it up to date. If we detect an incorrect address, your library account will be frozen until it is updated. You can update your contact information online via MyProfile, If you need help, Ask Us

Once you have signed up for your USask library card, you can learn about your borrower information by logging in to My Library Account.
