Villanova Faculty – Reciprocal Borrowing Options

Were you aware that all Villanova faculty have access to reciprocal borrowing privileges at selected colleges and universities, including the Charles Widger School of Law on Villanova’s campus?

The Law Library offers faculty access and borrowing privileges. Interested faculty may send an email to reference@law.villanova.edu with their name, department, position, office phone number, and office number/building name.

In addition, through the PALCI consortium and OCLC, a global library cooperative, faculty also have the option of visiting and borrowing from academic libraries in the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.

More recently, Falvey Memorial Library established a reciprocal borrowing agreement with the University of Pennsylvania Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center, which affords Villanova faculty access and limited courtesy borrowing privileges.

Visit the Reciprocal Faculty Borrowing Programs web page for information on how you can request access and borrowing privileges through any of the programs named above.

You may also call 610-519-4270 or email ref@villanova.edu for assistance.
