Distance Learners and the Library
DePaul University Libraries aims to provide the same level of service for ALL of our learners. As an online distance learner, you have the same access and library privileges as an on-the-ground student, as well as some special services.
Library Borrower ID
Your 14-digit library borrower ID is located on the back of your DePaul ID card above the barcode. Use this number to request and renew books and to login to the ILLiad interlibrary loan system
Don't have an ID card? You can figure out your library borrower ID number by following a formula. Your 14-digit library borrower ID number is 20511 + 7 digit DePaul ID number + 00. For example, if your DePaul ID number is 7777777, your library borrower ID would be 20511777777700.
