Reciprocal Faculty Borrowing Program

Fogler Library participates in the program of the Research Libraries Advisory Committee to OCLC that extends library privileges to faculty members of other research universities that are members of the Association of Research Libraries. The program was set up to promote and facilitate scholarly research and communication among faculty members of the participating institutions.

How to Participate

You will need a Borrowing Program Card, this card tells the lending library that you are a member of the faculty at the University of Maine. You may also need to present your MaineCard and/or other identification to the lending library. The Borrowing Program Card is issued by Joyce Rumery ( or call 581-1655).

Privileges vary from institution to institution, please ask Interlibrary Loan staff to check the OCLC on-line Name-Address Directory record for information about the institution you plan to visit. Interlibrary Loan Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:30pm, the number is 1-1671.

Your Responsibilities

Return materials within the loan period prescribed by the lending library. Return materials immediately 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. Please note that this is a program of privileges and participating libraries may suspend borrowing privileges. Reciprocal Faculty Borrowing Program Participants
