Borrowing from the CRLL


By submitting your borrowing request, you are committing to these terms and conditions and understand they must be met in order to retain your borrowing privileges:

1. You promise to return all the zines in your order within two months of receiving them.

2. You promise to reimburse the CRLL for zines that are lost or damaged at the cost determined by the librarian.

3. You promise you will not scan, copy, retype, create epubs or any other form of digital volume, or otherwise reproduce the zines you borrow from the CRLL to a file you then post on the internet in a publicly accessible way. You understand labeling a publicly clickable link as a “private collection” (or any similar wording), even one that requires a password, is not a workaround, and you promise you won’t do that either. You promise you will not facilitate any of the above-described activities by borrowing zines for someone else who intends to reproduce and share the zines online either directly or through a link to a “private” collection or database.

For details concerning Agreement #3, please read the CRLL’s stance on the Copying or Scanning of Zines for Online Posting.

4. You promise not to ship your borrowed zines to another address without the CRLL Librarian’s knowledge and agreement. If permission is granted the USPS tracking number and proof of insurance must be provided to the CRLL librarian.

5. You understand your borrowing privileges depend on the honoring of these Terms and Conditions.

If you have any questions about these terms and conditions of borrowing privilege, please message the librarian.
