Faculty and Staff Library FAQ

Details regarding library privileges for Rockhurst facuty and staff.

Getting Started ...

How do I get a library card?

Your employee ID is your library card.  In order to check out books or request items from other libraries, you will need to make sure your account is activated at the library.

The Rockhurst library system does create and update accounts at certain times during the year, so your account may or may not be automatically activated in the system. 

How do I do activate my library account? 

Bring your Rockhurst ID to the circulation desk in the library. Your Rockhurst ID enables you to check out Rockhurst books or request books through MOBIUS; however, it only works once your account is activated. 

What can I check out and for how long?  

The Rockhurst Main Collection (items located on the 2nd floor or on display). These items comprise the majority of the collection.
