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 University System of Maryland ID card, with 14-digit barcode, is needed to borrow materials from the Priddy Library as well as any of the 17 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 request it.

After requesting items from other USMAI libraries, you can check them out using your ID card once they arrive.  Your card will also be necessary to check out InterLibrary Loan items, requested through your home institution's ILL department.
