Passport Program

About the Program

The Passport Program allows UNM-Los Alamos students, staff and faculty to borrow materials in person from other participating academic libraries in New Mexico including other UNM libraries.

The Passport Program is sponsored by The New Mexico Consortium of Academic Libraries (NMCAL).

Before Visiting another Library

  • You must have a current Lobo photo ID card.
  • Verify that you are in good standing at the UNM-Los Alamos Library.
    • We will contact the library you plan to visit to let them know you are in good standing.
  • Verify the hours of the library you plan to visit by checking its web site before you make the trip.

Borrower's Responsibilities

  • Present your Lobo photo ID at the library you are visiting when you are ready to check materials out.
  • Provide any additional contact information required by the lending library and sign any and all documents required by the lending library with respect to borrowers' privileges and responsibilities.
  • Observe the policies and regulations of the lending library, and understand that all library services may not necessarily be available to you as a Passport Program borrower (e.g. computer use, interlibrary loan, etc).
  • Understand that the number of items allowed for checkout is determined by the respective lending library.
  • Return materials in person or by mail within the loan period determined by the lending library.
  • Return materials immediately in person or by priority mail, if recalled by the lending library.
  • Pay fines or other charges incurred as the result of late return, damage, or loss of materials.
  • Be aware that abusing borrowing privileges will result in losing those privileges.
