Welcome to the Priddy Library

You will find the Priddy Library to be one of the most important resources on campus for fostering student academic success and supporting your research and curricular development endeavors.

This guide will introduce you to resources, services and librarians available at the Library.

Your Library Card

A UM faculty or staff ID card with a 14-digit library barcode is needed to borrow materials from the Priddy Library and from any of the 16 USMAI libraries.

ID cards are issued from your home institution. If you do not have an ID card with a 14-digit library barcode, please click on your home institution link below:

An ID card with a 14-digit library barcode is also needed to access databases in ResearchPort, as well as to request materials through InterLibrary Loan Services, and to check "My Account".
