Registering with the PSU Libraries
All faculty and staff officially affiliated with Penn State and residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are permitted to register with the PSU Libraries. Faculty and staff are eligible for Penn State IDs that will serve as library cards. Penn State IDs are available at any Penn State campus ID office. Penn State faculty and staff can complete their library registration immediately after activating their Penn State Access Accounts.
