Application Type

Personal Agreement

I agree to abide by the Rules & Regulations of the UMass Amherst Library System and assume responsibility for replacing any lost or damaged material. I understand that all  outstanding prior bills or obligations owed to the University or its Libraries must be paid in full before borrowing privileges can be obtained. I acknowledge that the Library Borrower's Card is the property of the University of Massachusetts Amherst Library and I agree to return it upon request. Account activation requires a current valid state-issued photo ID and may require additional documentation for identity and address verification purposes.

Note while the UM Libraries remain closed we will not be able to supply new borrower cards or provide access to onsite materials

Note: Upon activation we require a current valid state-issued photo ID and may require additional documentation for identity and address verification purposes.
