Borrowing Privileges for Ministers in the Vicinity

Clergy serving churches or retired from active ministry as well as laypersons in paid professional ministries (and endorsed by their pastors) may register for borrowing privileges at the library. They may borrow up to 10 items at a time from the general circulating collection. They must call, email or catch the librarian in person to register for this privilege, and bring:

  • One form of ID with your address (driver's license or passport, etc.)
  • Verification of your clergy status (church website URL, business card, or letterhead with your name printed)
  • Laypersons in paid professional ministries should also bring a letter from their pastors.
  • $10 registration fee in cash or check (for first time users).

Ministers in the Vicinity (MIV's) are NOT eligible for off-campus access to online databases or InterLibrary Loan services.

Please call or email the librarian to register for this privilege!
