Library Cards

Members of the Marquette University Community

The MU Student, Faculty, or Staff ID card serves as a library card.

Law Library Courtesy Card

Members of the Wisconsin Bar, law librarians and paralegals employed in Wisconsin law firms may purchase a law library card.  Applications are available at the circulation desk.  After completed applications are submitted and fees are paid, a law library card will be mailed to the requester.

Law library card holders enjoy the privilege of borrowing circulating materials, entering Ray & Kay Eckstein Hall without showing an ID or signing in, and making copies or printing from their library card.

Law library card holders are responsible for all materials borrowed on their card. The library card must be presented by the card holder or an authorized representative to check out materials either at the circulation desk or at a self checkout station. Fines apply to overdue materials.

Please notify the circulation desk of lost or stolen cards as soon as possible.
