Library privileges
Privileges shall include book stack access and home-use borrowing. All materials borrowed shall be subject to the ULAC Cooperative Borrower patron guidelines of the lending library. All loan procedures and all charges assessed the cooperative user for overdue books, lost books, or damaged materials shall also be based on the policies of the lending library.

The lending library reserves the right to refuse borrowing and building-use privileges to any individual who violates the regulations of that library. Any library may deny cooperative borrowing privileges to any prospective borrower who is delinquent at his or her library or in any of the cooperating libraries. All fines and charges are the sole responsibility of the visiting borrower, not their home institution. Unpaid fines or charges will be forwarded to the visiting borrower’s home institution and applied to the borrower’s account there.
