One can use a MICA I.D. card to borrow materials at these libraries.
Consider using WorldCat to determine which location has the material you need, or search the libraries from the links shown below.
Or, time permitting, simply request an Interlibrary Loan and have the item delivered to the Decker Library, which generally takes from 1-2 weeks for books.

The privilege applies only to the Eisenhower Library on the Homewood Campus.
One can enter the Eisenhower Library by presenting a photo ID card between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. After 8 p.m., one must show an academic ID (i.e., a MICA ID).
Computer use within seated computer labs at the Eisenhower Library is restricted to those with borrowing privileges and requires registration at their Circulation Desk between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Stand-up computers throughout the library are available for use by all visitors, and contain the same resources as the seated computers.
NOTE: JHU limits access to the library during their mid-term and final exam periods. During those times, visitors can only use the library from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. This includes a "reading week" prior to their final exam week. During all other times, a valid JHU ID is required for entrance. See the JHU Academic Calendar.
