General Information

  • Library Card
    • Your library card is your SLCC OneCard. OneCard ID Centers are located at the Information Desk in the Student Center at Redwood, and in room W175 at South City. Call (801) 957-4022 for more information

      Community User Cards for non-SLCC personnel are available at Library Circulation desks for $20.00 per year. Community borrower cards DO NOT allow home access to databases.

      Faculty and students who attend one of the other UALC colleges or Universities in the state may present student IDs from their school to check out materials. Library staff will give them a card to use when checking out material here. Check the UALC website to see if your school is part of the consortium.

      Your library ID is your Student "S" number
