Reciprocal Borrowers

  • Reciprocal Borrowers may each borrow a maximum of 10 items. Of these items, a maximum of 5 may belong to our LD, ADHD & ASD Research Collection. Please consult the Library staff for possible exceptions.
  • Reciprocal Borrowers will resolve any bills for lost or damaged items with their home institution library. The Landmark College Library will bill the borrower’s library, and that library will resolve the bill with the borrower according to that library’s policies. Please see Lost/Damaged Items (Faculty & Staff) for more information.

  • Adult Residents of Windham County: Adult residents (age 18+) of Windham County may, upon presentation of a valid photo ID and proof of address, apply for visitor borrowing privileges. Residents under the age of 18 are not eligible for borrowing privileges unless a parent or legal guardian signs for them. The parent or legal guardian must apply in person with the minor and show a valid photo ID and proof of address.
     

Alumni Borrowers and Family Members of Current Landmark College Students

Alumni are also free to use the resources and services of the Library with the same borrowing privileges as current Landmark College students. Family members of current Landmark College students are welcome as part of the Landmark College community and as such have full access to the Library’s resources and services. They may borrow Library materials via their student’s Library account with the student’s authorization. Similarly, children of current Landmark College employees may borrow items via their parent or guardian’s account with authorization of that account holder.
