LMU Graduate students who wish to borrow from a SCATLA library should fill out our online form. Once approved by LMU, the student will go to the school they want to borrow from.

Full Time LMU faculty members who want to borrow books from AJCU institutions need to request the AJCU Direct Reciprocal Library Borrower Form from Library Administration (located on library level 3).

Full Time LMU faculty who want to borrow at other SCELC libraries must take a completed Patron Registration borrowing application to the library from which they want to borrow. An LMU circulation staff member will provide and sign the form, verifying that the faculty member is in good standing (no blocks), and fill in the "valid until" date (generally one year). Faculty requesting to borrow from multiple libraries will need to complete forms for each library. Borrowing privileges depend on the library from which they are borrowing.
