ATLA Reciprocal Borrowing Program

The Atla Reciprocal Borrowing Program creates an arrangement between participating North American Atla Institutional Members and Affiliate Candidate Libraries to grant check-out privileges to each other’s patrons/students. A patron/student walks into a participating library, shows proof of current enrollment at another participating library, and checks out materials based on its local lending policies.

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage individuals to contact the library directly before their visit.*

Information for Patrons/Students

For Portland Seminary and other George Fox University students:

Please review campus COVID-19 policies at any library you wish to visit through this program and call the library before you visit. You can see details about the library's collection and the access they offer through this program in the spreadsheet under the map on this page. You will be asked to provide proof of enrollment in a graduate level program here at George Fox. If the library requires confirmation from our registrar, you can learn about enrollment verification from their website. This program is not currently available to George Fox undergraduate students.


For students visiting from other institutions:

We're glad to welcome you! Please review the George Fox COVID-19 information page for visitors and call our front desk before visiting us.

Please note that we will only extend privileges through this program to students at the graduate level in participating institutions. You must provide proof of current enrollment in a graduate program at an eligible institution to qualify for this program.
