Prescott Memorial Library


The Louisiana Academic Library Information Network Consortium (LALINC) provides participating libraries with a program which will enable students and faculty from one university to check out materials from another university's library.

Current Tech students and faculty need to fill out a LALINC Reciprocal Borrowing Card Application and return it to the Circulation Desk located on the main floor of the library. A valid Tech I.D. must be presented at the time the form is submitted. Cards are processed during regular weekday hours from 8:00 a.m.to 4:00 p.m., but we ask that you allow about a day before returning to the Circulation Desk to pick up your card.

Only Tech students and faculty with a good loan history are given the privilege of having a LALINC card. Patrons receiving LALINC cards will be given a chart of participating libraries, a LALINC Reciprocal Borrowing brochure, and must follow the borrowing policies of each individual library.

NOTE: Printed copies of these materials are available at the Circulation Desk located on the main floor of the library. Contact Laura Ogden at laura@latech.edu, or call 318-257-3555 if you have any questions.
