Patron Eligibility

Any current student, staff, or faculty member from an Alliance member institution (including emeritus in some cases) has the ability to borrow materials at any other Alliance member institution as a Summit Visiting Patron.

Patrons who want visiting privileges and/or the option of picking up materials at a different Alliance library must physically visit that library in person in order to be verified first. They will need to show their ID (university, college, federal, or state issued) and be able to log in to their home library account.

Staff at the adopting library must verify that the patron has a valid account at their home library. Once they have confirmed that, they can then move forward with creating a visiting patron account for them in their own local database. We refer to this as “adopting” a Summit-eligible patron.

In order to verify the patron's current status, have them log in to their home library account using the institutional links below. There you should be able to see the patron's address, user group, and expiration date. The list of qualifying user groups is also available below.

NOTE: Calling the home library might be necessary if there is a problem with their account in Primo. When calling to verify a patron's identity, be aware that some libraries will only share patron information with the patron (after verifying their identity) while other libraries will not share any patron information over the phone whatsoever.
