The OCLC Reciprocal Faculty Borrowing Program (RFBP) enables faculty members to directly access library collections at participating research libraries in the United States and Canada.  Note: if you are visiting a library within Texas, please utilize the TexShare program.

TCU Faculty Visiting Other RFBP Institutions

  • Any current, full-time TCU faculty member may participate in the OCLC Reciprocal Faculty Borrowing Program.
  • Faculty should consult the RFBP Participant List to determine if the institution they intend to visit participates in the RFBP.
  • Prior to visiting a participating institution, faculty must obtain a RFBP borrowing card from the TCU Library Reference Desk.
  • Access and privileges for visiting faculty vary from institution to institution. TCU faculty visiting other libraries are expected to follow the policies of the institution they are visiting.
  • It is the faculty member's responsibility to:
    • Return materials, in person or by mail, within the loan period prescribed by the lending library.
    • Return materials immediately, in person or by express mail, if recalled by the lending library.
    • Pay all fines or other charges incurred due to late return of materials or damage to materials.
