ACL Reciprocal Borrowing Program

The Manuel Library is a member of ACL (the Association of Christian Librarians). This association includes a large number of libraries.

One benefit to the library’s membership is participation in the ACL Reciprocal Borrowing Program, which allows PIU students, faculty, and staff in-person borrowing privileges to the physical collections at any of the participating libraries in accord with their borrowing policies.

Though not an agreed-upon aspect of the Program, it is possible that these libraries would also allow in-person access to their digital resources as well.

For more information on the Program and for locating a participating library, go HERE.

If you would like to make use of this program, please contact us at or 336.714.7894. The library staff will need to fill out a portion of a form that you will then complete and take to the lending library you are wishing to use.  The process is quick and easy.
