Some university employees who have been hired as temporary or part-time workers will have a special i-card called an "Extra Help" card. An Extra Help card cannot be used as a library card. (Extra Help cards are not eligible for benefits, and the library is a benefit.) It's confusing because there is a library card number listed on extra help cards, but it's not active. People with Extra Help cards who want library access can apply for a courtesy card.
