To be able to borrow books or other DIT Library items, you need to pick up your DIT student card. Once you collect your card from Student Services your DIT Library account will be active within 24 hours. Check Student Services opening hours and contact details are available here

Other reasons to collect your card:
  • You can add Datapac Photocopying/Printing credit to your student card
  • Use your student card to access and borrow from any of the six DIT Libraries
