ATLA Reciprocal Borrowing

Ralph D. Winter Library is proud to be a participating member of the American Theological Library Association (ATLA) Reciprocal Borrowing Program. Olivet University students can visit and borrow the materials from participating libraries in North America. A patron can walk into a participating library, shows the proof of current enrollment at another participating library, and checks out materials based on the library's lending policies. If you are a currently registered student at another participating institution’s library, you can register for borrowing privileges here at the Ralph D. Winter Library.
