Windward Community College Library: Community Users

Community Users

A community borrower is defined as a borrower who is not a University of Hawai'i credit program faculty, staff or student. A community user must be: (a) a permanent resident of the country and, (b) at least 18 years old. Community borrowers are afforded the same privileges as campus borrowers except for the following:

  • They may not borrow Reserve items or Hawaiian collection materials
  • They may not receive intra- or inter-library loans
  • They may have loan periods different from campus borrowers
  • They may not receive bibliographic instruction

A community library card will be valid only at participating UH campus libraries. Community borrowers must present a picture ID and proof of Hawai'i residency to obtain a card. No materials may be borrowed without a card. A sticker placed on the card will indicate the card’s expiration date. Community borrowers must abide by the borrowing policies and procedures of the campus library or libraries they use.
