Requesting Materials Online

  • Click here to search for items in the lending library.
  • For the items you want to borrow, click “+Add to my request list.”
  • When you have finished selecting items you wish to check out, click “View my request list.”
  • If you already have an account (and established a username and password): A form will appear below which asks whether you have an account with LARC Lending Library. If you do have an account and have set a username and password, click “yes” to affirm that you have an account, and then entering your username and password will recall your contact and shipping information.
  • If you do not have an account with us: You should click “No” to confirm that you do not have a preexisting account, choose a username and password that you will use for this and subsequent LARC Lending Library material requests, and then fill in your contact and shipping information in the blanks.
  • Be sure to enter the date(s) on which you plan to use the requested materials in the “Show Date” blank for each item you request.
  • To complete your online request, you must click the box beside the statement, “I confirm that I have read the borrowing policies (Standard, Tulane / Loyola). I agree to follow all regulations outlined within the borrowing policies.” (Clicking here acknowledges that you are responsible for items you have checked out.)
  • You will receive an automatic email with the items you have selected and the show dates you have listed. This email confirms that your request has been successfully submitted. If you do not receive an email containing your request information, contact us immediately. Otherwise, you will not hear from us again regarding your request unless there is a problem with your request or item availability.

Remember, Standard requests must be received at least 3 weeks in advance of your show date and Tulane/Loyola requests must be received at least 7 days in advance of your show date.

Some further considerations when requesting materials are:

Scheduling
Some of our materials do take longer than a day to use. You may specify the entire period you need as the show date when making your original reservation. If you need an extension once you have already received the items, you must contact us within two days of the original show date (at least ten days before the due date).

Confirmation
You will not receive confirmation of your order as we do not have sufficient staffing to do this, but you will receive an automatically generated email copy of the electronic request you have submitted for your records. If you do not receive this email, your request has not gone through, and you should contact us.
We will contact you via email only if an item you request is not available. Feel free to call us at 504-862-3143 or email crcrts@tulane.edu to confirm your reservation.

Availability
As mentioned above, you will be notified if an item you request is not available for the dates you desire.

When to Expect Your Materials

Standard Borrowers

We schedule shipments to arrive at least three days before your show date to give you a chance to preview materials. If your materials have not arrived by 9:00 am on the third day before your show date, contact us immediately. We can trace the package or send a duplicate by express service in time for you to use the items as scheduled.

Tulane/Loyola Borrowers

Your materials will be ready for pick-up the Friday afternoon before your show date on the counter of the LARC office, located in Jones Hall, RM 100 I. Business hours are 8:30am – 5:00pm Monday through Friday excluding university holidays. If the LARC office is locked, please ask the secretary to let you in.

Questions? Call 504-862-3143 or email crcrts@tulane.edu.

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.

For more information and for the institute application, please visit the institute webpage.
