Lending Library

Who May Use The Lending Library

The service is open to local Tulane/Loyola faculty and teaching assistants. Lending materials to individual students or student organizations requires the sponsorship of a Tulane/Loyola faculty member. Contact the LARC if you have any questions about your eligibility for this service.

Five Basic Regulations

1) In order to request materials from the LARC, you must fill out the electronic request form and confirm that you agree to our terms and conditions by checking the box at the bottom of the form beside the sentence, “I confirm that I have read the borrowing policies (Standard, Tulane / Loyola). I agree to follow all regulations outlined within the borrowing policies.” Requests cannot be submitted and therefore will not be processed if a user does not agree to these conditions.

2) You must reserve materials at least seven days in advance of the day you plan to use them. Be certain to fill out the form completely; any orders which do not contain all of the necessary information, including a specific date on which you plan to use the materials, will not be processed. If any item you request is not available, you will be informed in writing at least three days before your scheduled show date. Please note that we will inform you only if items are unavailable; our limited staff makes it impossible for us to contact you to confirm requests. We do encourage our users to contact us by email or telephone to confirm their requests if they wish.

3) All users are limited to a total of ten items per semester. We consider January 1 – June 15 as the spring semester, June 15 -­ August 15 as the summer semester, and August 15 – December 31 as the fall semester. In addition, Tulane/Loyola borrowers may preview up to ten extra items per semester. The lending library operates on a limited basis during the summer and with modified policies, please see the Summer Borrowing section below.

4) All items must be returned by the due date which is listed on the slip accompanying the borrowed item(s). Any item not received in the LARC office within three days of its due date will be considered overdue.

5) The borrower will be held responsible for lost, damaged, or materials not returned.

6) Tulane/Loyola users must pick up their materials at the LARC office located in the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at 100 Jones Hall. LARC materials will not be sent through campus mail.

Viewing Equipment

If you require viewing equipment contact Technology Services. LARC is not in charge of viewing equipment.

Additional Information

It is always a good idea to make reservations as far in advance as possible. While we can easily accommodate additions or cancellations, changes in the date may result in new scheduling conflicts. Also, please be patient if the materials you want are in use by someone else, as the LARC Lending Library is a national service now utilized by over 500 educators.

These procedures are the result of a great deal of consideration and are intended to allow us to provide this service as efficiently as possible to a very large national clientele in spite of our very small staff. Please call or write us if you need any further information.

K-14 Summer Educator Institute in Cuba

View Full Event Description

Havana, Cuba | June 17 – July 1, 2017

The Application Deadline has Passed
$3,500.00 for 15 days

This two-week program through the Stone Center for Latin American Studies, Cuban and Caribbean Studies, and in collaboration with Primary Source provides the unique opportunity to work on developing lesson plans while exploring the sights and sounds of a nation and country that remain obscured behind political rhetoric and misinformation. Recent economic changes on the island have provoked a series of social and cultural transformations that have left Cubans and the entire world wondering what could be next for the island and the Revolution. Don’t miss the chance to witness some of these challenges and triumphs firsthand and get the opportunity to bring your experience back to your students in the classroom.

Tulane’s summer program is locally sponsored and supported by the National Union of Writers and Artists. Participants will stay within walking distance of the Malecón, the university, and several cultural venues. In addition to field trips in Havana, there will also be group excursions to the historic cities of Trinidad and Cienfuegos, the Che Guevara monument in Santa Clara, Playa Girón, and Viñales.
