Loras College Library's primary clients are students, staff, and faculty at Loras College.

We also serve Loras College alumnae and retirees; students, staff and faculty at Clarke University, Divine Word College, Emmaus Bible College, the University of Dubuque, Northeast Iowa Community College, and Wartburg Seminary; students from Highland College in Freeport, Illinois; members of the clergy of the Archdiocese of Dubuque; and Friends of the Loras College Library.

In addition, by presenting their public library card and Iowa picture identification, public library patrons may check-out most materials from the Loras College Library.

Note: Library patrons, other than the students, faculty, and staff of Loras College, will not have access to interlibrary loan services, reserve materials, or electronic databases/resources. For those services, we encourage public library patrons to check at their local public library and other patrons to check at their primary institution.
