The UCARD carries a photograph for identification purposes. If you do not have a photo on your record, you will need to provide/upload one when joining or alternatively pop in to the UCARD Bureau (they are located behind Reader's Cafe in the James Joyce Library Building) and they can take your photo.
Your will be activated for Library (Reader's) access within 1 hour of joining, once approval is granted from the Library. You will need to clear any outstanding loans/fees you have with the Library prior to joining - contact the Library directly on this matter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
