How do I take out library material if I don't have my student card?
Unfortunately Circulation can not allow you to take out material without your YU card. See below.
2.2 A valid library card must be presented in order to borrow materials or to obtain other library services. For York University students the YU-Card is their library card. Library cards are not transferable. The person named on the card is responsible for all library transactions made with the card. The loss or theft of a card must be reported immediately to the Circulation staff in any of the York University Libraries. In addition, a lost YU card must be reported immediately to the YU card Office. Borrowers will be held accountable for transactions on their card until such notification is received. Library staff check to see if the image in the circulation system is a match to the person signing out library materials, but in instances where this check is not made, or a misidentification occurs, this does not alleviate the user from overdue charges and other fines/fees. The person named on the card is still responsible for all library transactions made with the card.
