Norlin Vouchers

Voucher Program for Access to University of Colorado—Boulder University Libraries

Naropa University has a formal arrangement with CU-Boulder University Libraries that allows our community to have access to services at most libraries on the CU-Boulder campus.

Student Accounts

Vouchers are available at both Allen Ginsberg Library and Paramita Library at the main circulation desks—bring your Naropa ID!

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

There is no fee for vouchers for students.

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

Faculty and Staff Accounts

Vouchers are available at both Allen Ginsberg Library and Paramita Library at the main circulation desks—bring your Naropa ID!

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

There is a $40 fee for vouchers for faculty and staff.

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

Please note that the fee for a faculty or staff account is not discounted from what one would pay oneself if setting up a public patron account at CU Libraries. However, the Naropa community has some 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 Privileges and Policies

  • Check out period is 28 days with unlimited renewals and recall privileges
  • Access to CU Library online resources while in the library—there is no remote access to CU Libraries online resources
  • CU Libraries do not charge overdue fines for most items; however, if a book 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 an item with a regular checkout period is overdue, CU Libraries send out emails at the rate of 5-6 over a ninety-day period
  • If you do not return or renew the book 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.
