What is LALINC?
· LALINC is the Louisiana Academic Library Information Network Consortium.
· LALINC offers a way for students, faculty and staff of Louisiana colleges and universities to borrow materials from academic libraries other than their own.
· If you are a currently enrolled student, or an active faculty or staff member of a Louisiana college or university, and you are in good standing with your library, you may go to your library circulation desk and request a LALINC borrowing card.
· You may then present your LALINC card at another Louisiana academic library and request borrowing privileges. However, policies differ from library to library, and the lending library has the option to honor the LALINC card based upon the status (undergraduate, graduate, faculty or staff) of the cardholder.
· Possession of a LALINC card does not guarantee borrowing privileges from all Louisiana academic libraries. Information as to which libraries honor LALINC cards, and to which members of the academic community, is available here.
