Conditions for Borrowing and Lending


Application for IEALC authorization cards must be made by students at the library of the institution where they are currently registered. Authorization cards may be issued to currently enrolled students at the discretion of each member institution.

Authorization cards must be presented at the circulation desk of each library where the student intends to borrow materials. A member library may require additional identification.

Local lending rules at each participating library, including limits on the number of items borrowed and the levying of fines, shall apply to the borrowing of materials from that library.
