NEW Community Borrower Program

In the beginning of April the Rutgers University Libraries launched a new Community Borrower Program, which combines and replaces three separate guest borrower arrangements: the Friends of the Rutgers University Libraries borrowing card, corporate cards, and cards issued by request of individuals with special or unique research needs. The earlier borrowing arrangements are now no longer available.

The Community Borrowing Program is intended for individuals who cannot satisfy their information requirements through their local public library, organizational library, or interlibrary loan or who do not qualify for alumni or faculty reciprocal borrowing privileges. Community borrowers may purchase guest borrowing privileges by submitting an application form and $100 annual fee by mail to the University Libraries Administration. Community borrower cards must be applied for each year and will be issued by mail only.

For more information on the Community Borrower Program, please see this webpage: http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/rul/lib_servs/guest.shtml Please send any questions about this program, that are not answered by the webpage, to the Ask A Librarian service. This service may be accessed from the front page of the Libraries website.
