  Your Library Card

You must have your library card with you to check out materials from the NSU Alvin Sherman Library.

The library does not accept driver's licenses or Broward County Library (BCL) cards to check out materials.

Anyone that lives, works, or goes to school in Broward County may apply for a FREE Alvin Sherman Library card!  This card is not the same as a Broward County Library card, so you will need to get an Alvin Sherman Library card in order to check out materials from this library. 

Applications are available online or at the Circulation Desk, located on the first floor of the library.  You may return materials to any Broward County Library branch.

For NSU and University School students, faculty, staff, and alumni, your SharkCard is your library card to check out materials and access the library's online databases.  For information how to get a SharkCard, please visit Campus Card Services
