Sometimes research opportunities increase with collaborative efforts in academia. Access to information resources is important to success in college life. When an item is unavailable at the Doherty library, there are other ways to locate and access an information item. The Doherty library has a reciprocal borrowing program with the Fondren library at Rice University, which allows UST students, faculty, and staff to immediately obtain items directly from Fondren Library at Rice University.
To take advantage of the Rice Reciprocal Borrowing Program, you must
- Know the book you want in advance, as well as its call number. You can obtain this information by searching Rice University’s Fondren Library online catalog. Ask the Doherty library reference librarian, if you need help.
- As long as your account is up to date and you do not have any late fees or overdue books, use this link to begin: Request a Book from Fondren Library.
- You may borrow up to 4 books at a time for 4 weeks.
Please keep in mind that Rice overdue fines are a $1 per item per day, so be sure to return your materials to Rice by the due date given.
Single renewals may be arranged by contacting through email to: Ms. Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ms. Latner at email@example.com.
Please make use of this privilege when UST classes are in session. Rice University does not honor requests when there are no regular UST classes.
