How do I apply for privileges at other libraries?

To apply for borrowing privileges at another I-Share library:

There's no need to apply for privileges at another I-Share library: your JKM Library card (or, in previous years, your LSTC or McCormick i.d., with a JKM barcode affixed on the back) is your borrower's card at all I-Share libraries. A complete list of I-Share libraries is available here.
