Library Cards

Students, Staff, and Faculty and Postdoctoral Fellows of the University of Windsor

For Faculty (including Adjunct Faculty), students and staff, your UwinCARD is your library card and it allows you to borrow library materials from the Leddy Library and other libraries and to access online material from the Leddy Library while off-campus.
