Visiting Scholars

Appointments (such as honorary fellows) will need to obtain a Memorial Library card from the desk at the entrance to the Library. Appointments will need to present a UW photo ID card to obtain a General Library System borrowing card.

OCLC and CIC Faculty
Faculty visiting from CIC or OCLC institutions must bring a photo ID and the card given by the home institution to the card registration desk at Memorial Library.

Faculty Sponsored by a UW-Madison department
Sponsored faculty may obtain a library card by providing a letter of sponsorship from a UW-Madison department. The letter must be written on department stationery, state that the department takes responsibility for all overdue/lost book charges, dates of authorization, and is signed by the chair.
