Library Card and Borrowing Privileges

The Hawkeye Community College Library is open to Hawkeye students, faculty, and staff; and the general public.

Hawkeye Students, Faculty, and Staff

Your Hawkeye Card student ID is your library card. You can check out an unlimited number of most library materials.

Use your Hawkeye Card to:

  • Check out library materials
  • Access items from the Course Reserve Collection
  • Request an Interlibrary Loan
  • Enroll in the Library’s biometric system

Checkout Library Materials By Scanning Your Fingerprint

To enroll in the Library’s new biometric system, bring your Hawkeye ID to the desk, scan two fingers, and you’re set. Participation is voluntary.

NOTE: The image of your fingerprint is not stored in your student record. The system uses an algorithm which takes the measurement of the patterns of the fingerprint to create a unique 28 character alphanumeric ID that is used to authenticate you. Your fingerprint cannot be recreated from this code.

General Public

Members of the public may check out many library materials through the Iowa Open Access program.

Please present a photo ID to receive your Hawkeye Community College Library card.
