Reciprocal Borrowing Program: New Resources for Students

With over 60 participating libraries throughout the United States and Canada, the ATLA Reciprocal Borrowing Program‘s growth allows our members to meet the needs of their distance education students.

We have created resources for members and their patrons, including posters and bookmarks, to help them access materials from participating libraries. You may download the materials here. We also have a new map of libraries, which provides information on where students may check out materials.

The ATLA Reciprocal Borrowing Program creates an arrangement between participating ATLA members to grant check-out privileges to each other’s patrons. The user simply walks into a participating library, shows proof of current enrollment at another participating library, and checks out materials based on the library’s local lending policies.

To participate in this program, please go to our website for more details.
