This eCard is available to all Kansas residents and can be obtained at any public, school, or academic library in Kansas -- including Wichita State University Libraries. It provides access to digital materials available to all Kansas residents (ebooks/audiobooks, research databases). It is not so much a "card" as it is a login for online materials.

Request a card at your local public, academic, or school library. At WSU, go to the Circulation Desk in Ablah Library. You are required to show proof of Kansas residency.
