Borrowing from Other Libraries

Direct Access Program (Albany)

Albany students, faculty, and staff may borrow from other libraries in New York's Capital District. The Direct Access Program (DAP) allows our library users in good standing to borrow materials directly from participating libraries throughout the region.

You must have a DAP card to borrow from participating libraries. Cards are issued at the Lewis Library Services Desk Monday-Friday, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm.

Some libraries will only lend to certain groups, such as faculty or graduate students. Please be sure to check in advance. You are responsible for abiding by the rules and regulations of each of the libraries from which you borrow.  The lending library will validate users, and enter personal information into their own databases.  [NB: Call the lending library before you go to ensure that staff who can perform this validation are available.]

Lending libraries may choose to not honor a DAP card holder's request based on the card holder's outstanding obligations to the lending library or history of being delinquent with materials.

Click here for more information on DAP, including a list of participating libraries and their lending levels.
