Norlin Vouchers

University of Colorado-Boulder University Libraries

Naropa University has a formal arrangement with CU-Boulder that allows our community to access services offered by CU-Boulder University Libraries.

Naropa Students

Vouchers are available at both Allen Ginsberg Library and Paramita Library at the main circulation desks—bring your Naropa ID! There is no fee for vouchers for students.

Take your voucher, along with your Naropa ID, to the Norlin Library main circulation desk located on the CU-Boulder campus.

Norlin vouchers expire at the end of every semester and you are welcome to get a new voucher each semester.

Naropa Faculty and Staff

Vouchers are available at both Allen Ginsberg Library and Paramita Library at the main circulation desks—bring your Naropa ID! There is a $40 fee for vouchers for faculty and staff.

Take your voucher, along with your Naropa ID, to the Norlin Library main circulation desk located on the CU-Boulder campus.

Norlin vouchers expire at the end of every semester and you are welcome to get a new voucher each semester.

Please note that the voucher fee for faculty and staff is not discounted from what one would pay oneself if setting up a public patron account at CU Libraries. However, Naropa community members have additional privileges that are offered through the voucher program which include:

  • The ability to pay semi-annually, instead of for a full year at a time; if you only need access during one semester of the academic year, this would allow you to save money
  • The ability to recall books
  • Unlimited renewals
  • The ability to request books from Pascal, the off-site storage system
  • The ability to check out A/V materials for use in Norlin Library

CU-Boulder University Libraries Policies

  • Access to CU Libraries online resources is available while in the library; remote access is not available
  • The standard checkout period for books is 28 days with unlimited renewals and recall privileges
  • CU Libraries do not charge overdue fines for most items; however, if an item is recalled and not returned, the fee is $2/day
  • Items with short term checkouts, like A/V materials, are fined at either $2/hour or $2/day
  • When items with a 28-day checkout period are overdue, CU Libraries send out emails at the rate of 5-6 over a 90-day period.
  • If you do not return or renew an item within those 90 days, you will be billed for replacement, which is generally a $200 fee. Even if the item is returned later, there is a $10 billing charge. Also note that by state law, CU Libraries are required to send unpaid bills to a collections agency after 60 days. This is not something that Naropa or our library can prevent.

How To Get To Norlin Library

Norlin is less than a mile away from Naropa's Arapahoe Campus. There is a convenient walking path between Naropa and CU, and the HOP bus (which stops just downstreet from the corner of Arapahoe Ave. and Folsom St.) has a stop right on the plaza in front of Norlin.

* The Law Library at CU Boulder uses a separate circulation system and one would need to set up a separate account with them. Accounts at the Law Library are currently free; no voucher is needed.
