Need Your ID?

SMU Patrick Power Library News - Fri, 2014-08-22 15:44
Our ID-making equipment will be moving around over the next couple weeks.  Sometimes here, other times at the Services Expo over in Loyola (L290).  The schedule can be, admittedly, a little confusing (even for me).

So, in the interest of trying to make this as clear and simple as possible, here are the location(s) and hours if you want to get your  shiny new Saint Mary's University ID card:

LibraryAug-25 10:00 AM - 2:00 PMAug-26 9:00 AM - NoonService Expo - Loyola Conference Hall (L290)Aug-27 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Aug-28 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Aug-29 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Aug-30 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Aug-31 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Sept-01  10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Sept-02  10:00 AM - 4:30 PM Sept-03  10:00 AM - 4:30 PMSept-03  back to the Library@ 4:30, joined by SMUSA (where you can also get your bus pass) Sept-08 onwards 10:00AM - 2:00 PM, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Remember that your ID is needed for a lot of things - it's "official" proof that you're part of Saint Mary's, you need it to get your (free) bus pass and to write exams and, most important of all, it's your Library Card.  Smile!
