Like George Fox, many public and private university libraries are open to visitors and may make their online collections available for onsite use. As a rule, state universities are open to residents of their state (usually with photo ID and proof of residence). We recommend contacting libraries at private universities directly to see if they are open and what visitor privileges are.

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. Although this agreement is between seminaries and Christian colleges & universities, all George Fox graduate students are eligible to participate.
Many public libraries also offer access to research tools and services, such as online databases and Interlibrary Loan services. Depending on your research topic, you may find appropriate access through your local public library.
