Your Lyon College ID is your library card! When you first arrive at Lyon, be sure to get your ID and away you go to the library!
If you are not a student, staff, or faculty member, bring one of these acceptable forms of ID to the Circulation desk:
Photo identification such as your Arkansas driver’s license or a government-issued photo ID, military ID, or passport.
Library costs are below:
Because of a mutual sharing agreement, Lyon College students can borrow books at other College and University libraries in this state. Browse ArkLink's Libraries to see if there's something you can use within driving distance. Pick up a library card at our front desk before you go. You cannot login to their article databases from off-campus but most have a guest policy allowing you to search their databases in-house.
Interlibrary Loan. For any items that we do not own, but you need for research, please fill out the ILL Request form that you see in the WorldCat search result for the item. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the bibliographic information on the item. Physical copies of books can be acquired for local faculty, staff and students. Only digital copies of articles can be acquired for non-locals. If retrieving a physical ILL item, we will allow your entrance to Anna’s office. Please return physical items to the book return in the breezeway.
Curbside pickup. We are implementing curbside pickup and books can be ordered for pickup at email@example.com. We’ll notify you when they are on the cart which will be rolled into the breezeway. They will already be checked out in your name and all you have to do is pick them up!
Returned books should be returned in the wall slot which is also in the breezeway entrance on the right when facing the library.
Use WorldCat Discovery to find most of what you'll need for your research needs. It's the search box in the upper left corner! If that doesn't work, try the A-Z blue box.
Reserves. Because of Covid the reserve collection has been disbanded for this academic year. Please check with the librarians if you need to order an ebook or streaming media. Additionally, documents can be scanned and links loaded into Schoology.

How Do I Login?
When off-campus, Lyon College faculty, staff, and students please use your Lyon user ID of: firstname.lastname@example.org and your password to login. You no longer have to use RDS to log in. Find your browser, your web page, your database, search the database, and when the authentication screen pops up, use your student ID and password. You only have to do this once a session.
Community members who have purchased a card can use the databases in the library building but not remotely.
