UC Berkeley Library

I'm a new student/staff/faculty member. How do I get a library card?

For UC Berkeley registered students, faculty, instructors, lecturers and staff, your Cal 1 Card serves as your library card for borrowing materials and for access to the Main (Gardner) Stacks, Moffitt Library, the Media Resources Center and other areas requiring a Cal ID.

UC Berkeley unregistered undergraduates or graduate students on filing fee status can apply to have your library privileges extended. Visiting Scholars can also apply for library privileges.

If you have questions:
