To look up your eID, use the eID Finder. You will need two of the three following pieces of information: your date of birth, your VCU card number, or your VCU Banner ID (a.k.a V number). Ms. Rainey, who coordinates MLWGS student registrations with VCU, can look up your Banner ID.
To obtain a VCU card (photo ID), follow the instructions @ VCUCard Online.
Then, each time you wish to borrow books from VCU Libraries, you must see Ms. DeGroat to obtain another single-use borrower pass which will allow you to borrow up to 5 books (maximum total allowed) from the James Branch Cabell and Tompkins-McCaw Libraries. The loan period is 28 days. This policy applies to both teachers and students.
In order to obtain such a pass, your account with the MW Library must be in good standing (no overdue books or unpaid fees/fines).
Overdue fines and fees for lost or damaged books
For simplicity of accounting, VCU Libraries charges each high school for the overdue fines and lost book fees incurred by its borrowers. However, the responsibility for these charges ultimately falls to you. Therefore, if you incur overdue fines or fees for losing or damaging materials that you borrow from VCU Libraries, you will be responsible for reimbursing MLWGS for these charges. VCU Libraries will send reminders to the email you indicate on your VCU Libraries registration form.
Students enrolled in year-long VCU dual-enrollment courses have the same level of borrowing privileges as undergraduates (see undergraduate column of chart) during the SECOND semester of the school year. This is a separate policy from the high school borrowers policy and these privileges include off-campus access VCU’s online resources for students with an active VCU eID username and password. You may also seek the assistance of VCU's talented staff of reference librarians for the subject area of the course in which you're enrolled.
Communications from VCU Libraries
For non-dual enrolled MLWGS students who borrow books from VCU with a single-use borrower pass,VCU Libraries will send reminders to the email you indicate on your VCU Libraries registration form.
