Can I use the UM library as a non-affliated member of the community?


Montana Borrower Account

You can set up a Montana Borrower account by bringing in an ID and proof of a Montana address. With a Montana Borrower account, you can borrow and place holds on items from our physical collections.

Library databases are only available from off-campus to current faculty, staff, and students with a NetID. The library is unable to assign remote use privileges to alumni or others due to limitations imposed by the vendors we sign license agreements with. You are welcome to use the resources as a walk-in user at the library if it’s practical for you or as a guest user of the wireless network on campus.

Additionally, OneSearch is available for anyone to search and includes Open Access (OA) scholarship, which is online and freely accessible. To browse OA scholarship, enter your search terms and select the Open Access filter under the Refine Results options. New to OA? Learn more about it here! Walk-in use (as described above) is an option for these online materials.

A Montana borrower username/password will not grant access to online materials or our interlibrary loan service. Contact your local public library, and they can help you get materials!
