Library Agreements

iStock 000020557628XSmallThe Library Resource Sharing and Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement, in place since 1996, provides students, faculty and staff access to and borrowing privileges for all physical materials that circulate at each of the participating institutions.

Participation in this agreement is open to any member of SMHEC which has a full-service library that meets the ACRL guidelines for library services.

Borrowers must comply with the lending library’s rules/regulations (including the payment of fines, late fees, charges for lost or damaged materials, etc.). The lending library is under no obligation to loan materials it does not normally loan and it may also set other reasonable borrowing restrictions.
