How to Get Your Belmont College Library Card

Hello! Welcome to the Learning Commons/Library.

The library has many resources that students can use in order to have the best academic career possible.  In order to use these resources, students must have a library card.  

The second tab above has a brief welcome video explaining more about using library resources. Once you have watched the video, go to the very last tab, Card Application, and fill out the form. Once you have completed the form, click submit. Once the library has received your application, staff will email a confirmation and mail your library card to you.

The rest of this page has some important information about the library.  You may print this page for your convenience (click "Print Page" above).
