Additional Borrowing Information

  • All UPS students, faculty, and staff are eligible to utilize the resources at Collins Memorial Library. Affiliated users have limited access to materials. The library requires that patrons present valid identification at each checkout and pick up transaction. Privileges are non-transferable.
  • Visitors may seek a librarian’s assistance with resources at Collins Library, but service is limited. We encourage visitors to start with their public or academic library to ensure they have utilized their local or regional resources. Puget Sound students, faculty and staff have priority in Reference Service and the use of all library resources and equipment.
  • Lost cards: If you lose your university ID or UPS Library issued card, please notify the library as soon as possible, so that there are no further checkouts using that card. Also, notify Dining Services if you have lost your university ID, replacement fees may apply.
