Reciprocal Faculty Borrowing

Falvey Library, as a member of PALCI, has agreed to participate in a program that offers free reciprocal borrowing privileges to faculty at member institutions so they may have direct, personal access to materials that are not available at the home institution. Faculty are eligible to borrow materials on-site from the libraries listed below after completing these steps.

  • Get an authorization form signed by the circulation department at your home institution's library.
  • Bring the completed and signed authorization form to the participating library
  • The library will establish a record for you in their system that will allow you to check items out from their library. Additional infomration may be requested to complete the registration process.
  • You will be responsible for returning the material to the library from which it was borrowed. Your home institution library may agree to return items to the lending library through interlibrary loan. Please check with your local library to find out their policies.
  • Each participating library sets their own policies. You will be financially responsible for the items you borrow. Upon request, the lending libraries should supply you with the details of their policies when you borrow materials from them.
