ISU ID Card/Number

Borrowing privileges are extended to Eli M. Oboler Library patrons who present a current ISU ID Number—Idaho State University's identification card.

For specific information about obtaining an ISU ID Number and its use campus-wide, see ISU ID, call (208) 282-3618 or email photoid@isu.edu

ISU IDs can be easily configured to be used as debit cards for copy, candy and beverage machine purchases at designated machines on campus. Thus, ISU IDs provide a convenient alternative to carrying cash. You can also save money by using your ISU ID within the Library; copies purchased using an ISU ID are $.07/copy, while those made using cash are $.10/copy. Non-ISU users may purchase a debit card that can be used in the same way.

Cash may be applied toward an ISU ID at a Bengal Bucks machine, one of which is located within the Library in the Student Lounge on the First Floor. Debit cards may be purchased at Bengal Bucks machines for $ 1.00. A maximum of $ 50.00 may be applied to either type of card. Ask at the Circulation Desk for assistance in using the Bengal Bucks machine.
