Naropa students, faculty and staff can make use of other local libraries as a supplement to Allen Ginsberg Library collections and resources.
Naropa affiliates can come to our library to pick up a Norlin Library voucher, which can then be used to set up a borrowing account at CU Libraries. ( See more information on the voucher program.) Databases can be accessed in the library but not remotely.
