Resources can also be borrowed through Louisiana Libraries Information Network Consortium (LALINC) Libraries. LALINC allows persons to borrow resources from other libraries with a LALINC card. Each library determines the conditions that a borrower must meet in order to borrow resources. For example, the lending library determines the due date of materials borrowed from participating institutions. Graduate students must renew their LALINC cards at the beginning of each semester and faculty at the beginning of each academic year. LALINC applications are issued between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Circulation Desk.
