INTERLIBRARY USE (ARCHE) CARDS
The Woodruff Library is a member of the Atlanta Regional Consortium for Higher Education (ARCHE) , consisting of 19 public and private colleges, universities, and other institutions of higher learning, as well as five affiliated independent libraries and 12 corporate and non-profit community partners.
As a member of ARCHE, Atlanta University Center students and faculty have access to the library materials of all ARCHE member institutions.
- Faculty privileges are free.
- Students must pay a $50 deposit (Money order only). The deposit is refundable if no fines are incurred. Allow two weeks for mailing.
Applications for ARCHE cards should be submitted to the Reference Desk. Students and faculty are strongly encouraged to consult with the librarian responsible developing resources in the specified subject field. According to the ARCHE agreement, an interlibrary use card can only be issued when the home library lacks sufficient resources in the designated research area.
Printed general and subject-specific guides are available at the Reference Desk. Users may also access Research Guides electronically via the Library's website. The purpose of these guides is to introduce some of the key resources available in the Robert W. Woodruff Library. The guides are not a comprehensive listing of resources, but are intended as a starting point from which researchers can begin to compile data relevant to specific topics.
