OCLC Reciprocal Faculty Borrowing Program

Overview

This program allows faculty members from Syracuse University and other participating institutions to gain borrowing privileges and on-site access to many research libraries in North America. View the OCLC Reciprocal Faculty Borrowing Program membership roster [PDF].

Eligibility

All Syracuse University Faculty are eligible to participate in this program. To get information on how to gain access to other libraries, please email circhelp@syr.edu to facilitate establishing the credentials needed for faculty to access other libraries.

Guidelines

It is the responsibility of the Syracuse University Faculty who participate to:

  • Obtain and present appropriate identification when requesting a Reciprocal Faculty Borrowing Program card from the home library and show that card, along with other required identification, when borrowing materials from another library.
  • Observe the borrowing policies of the lending library.
  • Return materials in the method defined by the lending library within the loan period prescribed by the lending library.
  • Return materials immediately, in person or by express shipping, if recalled by the lending library.
  • Pay any and all fines or other charges incurred due to late return of materials or damage to materials.

SHARES

Overview

This program allows faculty, students, and staff from Syracuse University and other participating institutions to gain on-site access to collections at many research libraries, museum libraries, and archives in the United States and several other countries. Participating Institutions can be found on the SHARES website.

Eligibility

All Syracuse University faculty, students, and staff are eligible to participate in this program. To get information on how to gain on-site access to the collections of other SHARES institutions, please email circhelp@syr.edu. However, Syracuse University faculty, students, and staff should only need to show a valid Syracuse University I.D. to get on-site access at SHARES partner libraries.

Guidelines

It is the responsibility of the Syracuse University faculty, students, and staff who participate to:

  • Obtain and present appropriate identification and credentials to participate in the SHARES program and to present this information, along with other required identification, when using the collections at another library.
  • Observe the policies for on-site access set by the lending library.
  • Consult with Syracuse University Libraries circhelp@syr.edu if the desired collection access is from archives or other restricted collections, as additional contacts through a subject librarian may need to be arranged.
