If you’re a Drake faculty member who is in Iowa City regularly..

The University of Iowa Libraries is pleased to announce a policy change that allows all faculty working at any higher ed institution in the state of Iowa to borrow books for one year.

By showing a current Faculty ID card from their university or college at the service desk at the Main Library, Hardin Library for the Health Sciences, or a branch library, faculty will be issued a borrower’s permit that will allow them to check out books for one year.  Previously, the loan period was for 4 weeks.

Applying for this borrower’s permit can be done online, a few days before your visit to Iowa City (  The U of Iowa Libraries hope this change in service will allow better use of their collection across the state.
