CPSLD Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement

UFV is a member of CPSLD (Council of Post-Secondary Library Directors). CPSLD libraries give borrowing privileges to students, faculty, and staff of other partner institutions. Current students & employees of one publicly funded B.C. post-secondary institution are granted on-site borrowing privileges at another B.C. post-secondary institution library, free of charge, & that permission is reciprocated.

Students & employees must present valid identification from their institution when borrowing materials from another institution library. Reciprocal borrowers are registered at the lending library according to the lending library’s practice (e.g. expiry date established by lending library).

Loan policies  e.g. types of items loaned, number of items, length of borrowing period) of the lending library are followed. Materials must be returned to the lending library and will not be cleared from the borrower’s record until they reach the lending library. Any costs (for overdue fines, damaged or lost materials) are paid by the borrower to the lending library.
