In order to charge materials from any University Library a borrowing card with a machine-readable barcode must be used.
Faculty, staff, and currently registered UM students may have the barcode on the back of their M-Card activated at any University Library circulation desk.
New faculty and staff wishing to activate their cards within a month of their appointment may do so at the Graduate Library, the Taubman Medical Library, or the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library. New students can go to any of these three sites as well as the Undergraduate Library.
