How do I get an ALCID card?


ALCID is a co-operative scheme allowing access to many academic libraries in Ireland. UCC is a member.

  • UCC staff and degree level postgraduate students can visit participating libraries and consult material (no borrowing).
  • Fill out the application form below to apply for an ALCID card and submit it. Your Library Account must be in order - no fines or overdue books.
  • You will receive an email when the ALCID card is ready. 
  • Sign the card when you collect it.  The card is valid from October to September of the following year.
  • When you want to visit a library, check the library website for information about ALCID access (participating libraries listed below).
  • Take your valid ALCID card and your student/staff card with you when you visit the library.

TIP: If you are visiting a library to consult specific material, contact the library in advance to make sure the material is available.
