Borrowing Books From UVM

UVM has temporarily suspended reciprocal borrowing. To request an item held by UVM fill out an ILL request.

Champlain faculty members and students may borrow books from the circulating collection of University of Vermont's Howe Library. This reciprocal borrowing agreement applies to all full-time undergraduate students, all permanent faculty and staff members, and all graduate students of Champlain College.

The agreement allows up to ten books to be borrowed at one time, with a circulation period of 28 days. The agreement covers volumes in the library's main collection and the Library Annex, but it does not include reference books, Special Collections, Dana Medical Library, or other specialized resources. Please note that if you borrow books from UVM under this agreement, you will be subject to UVM circulation policies, including overdue fines and replacement fees.  Also, please be aware that books you borrow from UVM are for your personal use; they cannot be placed on course reserve at Champlain.
