Haskell students have access to the University of Kansas (KU) library resources by filling out a registration form. “The whole process of registering at KU library is time consuming and somewhat frustrating, but it’s worth it.” Shelby Herrod, Haskell student.

To register, students need a Haskell I.D. card and one federal government I.D. such as a driver’s license, state identification, or active military identification. Before entering the Watson Library, ask the personnel at the front desk for a registration form. “Haskell students need to make sure to input the entire identification number on the Haskell I.D. cards, otherwise the computer won’t recognize the number despite the recording meant for KU I.D. cards only,” instructs KU library staff.

There is no cost for a library card and the process may take up to 20 minutes. Once completed students have full access to all three libraries including unlimited number of books checked out for a time period of 2 months. Renewing books can be done over the phone by calling (785) 864-4715 or online at lib.ku.edu/Watson. Library fines are two dollars per day up to twenty-five dollars for short term books and four dollars a day up to twenty-five dollars for reserved books.
