    SCHEME OPERATION

  • The identification card used in the home library will normally provide access to borrowing privileges in host libraries.

  • Some libraries may require that the user produce a letter from the home library recommending that the user be granted borrowing privileges. This letter can be used in any participating library and should therefore be retained by the user.

  • Items borrowed must be returned to the host library.


  • RESPONSIBILITY OF RECIPROCAL BORROWER
  • The reciprocal borrower must be a registered borrower of the home library.

  • The reciprocal borrower must agree to honour the regulations of the host institution/s, return publications by the due date or upon request of the host library pay any charges for late returns, lost or damaged items, and notify the home and host institutions at which she/he is enrolled as a borrower of any change of address.

  • Failure to honour these responsibilities may result in the borrower being suspended from borrowing from both the home and host libraries.

  • Borrowers must agree to reimburse the home institution for any debts discharged by the home institution on the borrowers behalf.
