Eligibility for Library Services

Lane students, staff, and faculty may check materials out from the LCC Library, place Summit and interlibrary loan requests, and access online databases from remote sites and on campus.

Community Borrower Card
Residents of the Lane Community College District, volunteer staff, and affiliated researchers may purchase a Community Borrower Card. Card holders can check out books from the LCC Library, place interlibrary loan requests, and access online library resources while in the main campus library. Academic licenses for databases restrict the use of databases to community borrowers from remote locations. Certain ebook collections are not available to Community Borrowers.

Reciprocal Borrowing
Lane students, staff, and faculty may check out materials from libraries with which Lane has a reciprocal borrowing agreement. Students, staff and faculty from these libraries may check materials out from the LCC Library.

Summit Borrowing is available to Lane's currently enrolled credit students and current or retired faculty and staff members. Summit is the online library catalog for the Orbis Cascade Alliance, a library consortium composed of 37 public and private colleges, community colleges, and universities in the Pacific Northwest. LCC Library has a reciprocal borrowing agreement with all of the Alliance institutions.

LCC Library also has a reciprocal borrowing agreement with Northwest Christian College.

Appeal of Library Charges

You may appeal if you believe the library charges are mistakenly assessed or extenuating circumstances warrant reduction or cancellation of the charges. Appeals should be made within 30 calendar days of the original Library Charge.

A notice of overdue items is sent as a courtesy reminder. Non-receipt of an overdue notice does not exempt you from fines or charges. It is your responsibility to assure that a current mailing address is in your library record (you may also include an email address). You may appeal by completing an Appeal of Library Charges form available at the Circulation desk. You will be told about the outcome by mail.

The Circulation Services Coordinator’s decision may be appealed to the Library Director within two weeks of receipt of the initial decision. The Library Director will make a decision in writing within two weeks of receipt of the appeal.

Reasons generally not regarded as valid for canceling or reducing charges:
