How do I get a Library Guest Account?

To obtain a Library Guest Account, visit the Welcome and Information Desk (WID) on the Lower Level of the Rebecca Crown Library during the following hours:

Monday - Thursday 7:45 am to 8:00 pm
Friday and Saturday 7:45 am to 5:00 pm
Sunday Visit the Support Center, LL of Lewis Hall from Noon to 5:00 pm
Step 1 - Share a Valid form of Photo Identification

A valid form of photo identification - driver's license, state ID or passport - must be presented at the time an account is issued.

Step 2 - Accept Terms and Conditions

Review and accept the University’s Network Risk and Liability Release Agreement (NRLA).

Step 3 - Receive Library Guest Login Account Card

The WID Agent on duty will provide a Library Guest login account card with your username and password. Once successfully logged into a workstation located at the lower level of the Rebecca Crown Library, you'll be immediately prompted to set a unique password. 

The password must meet the password complexity requirements:

  • Passwords must be at least 8 characters
  • Must contain at least 3 of the following:
    • One number
    • One lower case letter
    • One upper case letter
    • One symbol
  • Must not be longer that 24 characters
  • Must not contain a dictionary word
  • Must not contain your DU Net ID
  • Must not be a password you have used within the last 10 password changes.
Step 4 - Add Print Funds to your Library Guest Account (Optional)

To add personal print funds with cash, you will need to visit the printing kiosk located in the lower level of Rebecca Crown Library next to the printers. For a step-by-step guide on how to add printing funds to your account, visit the following Knowledge Base article. 

If your Library Guest Account was replaced and you had remaining funds on your old account, we will work with our Support Center team to transfer your funds. Please allow 24-48 hours for your print funds to appear from the time that your Library Guest Account was reissued.
