UPDATE - Summer 2020

CCALD Overview

The Council of Connecticut Academic Library Directors (CCALD) is a statewide consortium of academic library directors, working together to improve services and access to resources through cooperation.


Connecticut academic libraries enrolled in the CCALD/CLC Reciprocal Borrowing Program have agreed to offer a variety of borrowing privileges to faculty, staff, and students of other participating institutions. Participants should consult the Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement and be able to agree to all terms of the lending institution.
