You can find a list of partnering institutions in the blue box on the ACL website.

In order to borrow from another institution, you must FIRST obtain a signed Authorization Form from Kinlaw Library.  To do so, please email library@asbury.edu and attach the Authorization Form with the top portion already complete.
