Lobo ID Card

Lobo ID cards for Students, Faculty and Staff are issued free of charge at the Library. The ID card is required for all Students, Faculty and Staff to check out material in the Library. It is also beneficial as another form of government-issued photo ID.

Please have your UNM ID number when you come in!

Fees must be paid and a copy of the receipt must be given to the Library to receive your replacement card.

  • To pay fees with cash or check, visit the cashier’s office.

Damaged Cards

Damaged cards will be replaced with a $10 damage fee. An active card that no longer functions due to normal wear and tear may be swapped out with no charge at the discretion of the Library.

To ensure proper card function (and avoid the damage fee):

  • Do protect your card from excessive heat.
  • Do protect your card from becoming demagnetized by avoiding contact with cell phones, TVs, speakers, microwaves, and other portable electronic devices.
  • Don't bend, fold, or otherwise mutilate your card; this means don't carry it in your back pocket.
  • Don't let pets or children chew on your card.
  • Don't use your card as an ice scraper or lock pick.
  • Don't punch holes in your card.
