You'll need to bring your valid University ID and proof of an active Borrow Direct/University login to the Library Privileges office just inside Widener Library.

To obtain proof of an active Borrow Direct/University login, please log into Borrow Direct from your home institution's page- links available here:

 Once logged in, click on the My Account link in BorrowDirect.  A staff member will verify that you are able to access My Account as authorization for borrowing privileges. (Duke affiliates may authenticate using their library My Account page.)
