Library Services & Policies

LALINC Program

What is LALINC?

  • LALINC is the Louisiana Academic Library Information Network Consortium. 
  • LALINC offers a way for active students, faculty and staff of Louisiana colleges and universities to borrow materials from academic libraries other than their own.
  • If you are a currently enrolled LSUS student, or an active LSUS faculty or staff member, and you are in good standing with the Library, you may go to the Library Circulation Desk and request a LALINC card.  You may then present your card to another Louisiana academic library and request borrowing privileges.
  • Please note that possession of a LALINC card does not guarantee borrowing privileges from all Louisiana academic libraries. Policies differ from library to library, and the lending library has the option to honor the LALINC card based upon the status (undergraduate, graduate, faculty or staff) of the cardholder.
