The faculty librarians & staff of the Library are happy to welcome you to the PLU community. We have created this guide to highlight the resources & services we think you may need in the first 4-6 weeks of the semester. If you find that you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us or just stop by.
Your Lutecard (PLU ID card) is your library card. The first time you check out an item book, our circulation staff will add a barcode to the back of your card.
There is no limit to the number of items you can check out and no fines.
You will, however, have to return all checked out items at the end of every academic year (due date: April 30). Full details about borrowing privileges are available online.
Use the media request form to place orders for films, videos, DVDs and VHS tapes from the library collection to be put on hold for classroom use.
If the library doesn't own the item, we will try to acquire it through Interlibrary Loan, Netflix, or through direct purchase.
Please make your request at least one week before you need to show it in class.
You can also submit a list of requests at the beginning of each academic term with the dates that you need them.
If you are teaching a new course or know of new resources that would be of use to your students, please contact your departmental liaison or submit the request form below.
