Access to Resources in Other Libraries
When access to Nyack/ATS Libraries print resources is not possible, these options are available to you for accessing resources in other libraries.
NEW! The ACL Reciprocal Borrowing Program
The ACL Reciprocal Borrowing Program provides in-person borrowing privileges to Nyack College/ATS students, faculty, and staff to physical collections from participating ACL institutions. Library privileges and policies are determined by the lending library and may vary from those of the borrower’s home institution.
How to Participate:
Rockland County (NY) Reciprocal Borrowing Institutions
The following institutions have reciprocal borrowing agreements with our libraries. To use this service, the borrower will present a current Nyack/ATS ID to borrow resources from these libraries. Privileges and loan periods are determined by the lending library and may vary from those of the borrower’s home institution.
A membership with your local public library will provide you with access to the collection locally and within the area, and give you Interlibrary Loan provisions.
Nyack College/ATS Area Public Library Systems
New York Public Library
Any person who lives, works, attends school or pays property taxes in New York State is eligible to receive a New York Public Library card free of charge. Your library card provides access to the resources and services of all New York Public Library locations in the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island.
College, Seminary, and University Libraries
Many college, university, and seminary libraries allow you to pay for an annual membership with defined access.
State or National Libraries
Check your state library access and privileges. Many state libraries give all residents access to valuable resources. If you have access to the Library of Congress, you may register for a Reader Identification Card for on-site access to materials.
Your Alma Mater (Alumni Privileges)
The college or university that you previously attended may offer library privileges to alumni. Contact the library at the institution to inquire about alumni borrowing privileges.
