Research Library Cooperative Program

The Research Library Cooperative Program (RLCP) coordinates shared onsite and remote borrowing privileges between participating libraries: the University of California at Berkeley, Stanford University, and the University of Texas at Austin.

Borrowing from UC Berkeley

Check your home catalog first. You cannot request materials that are available at your home institution. Find materials to borrow in UC Berkeley's catalog, OskiCat. The Doe Library Reference Desk (510.542.6657) can also help you locate materials. Be sure to review on-site access and borrowing policies before visiting the libraries of RLCP resource-sharing partners.

Stanford University Researchers:
1. Complete a RLCP Borrowing Request Form for each book or photocopy you'd like to request.
2. If an item is checked out, you can send a recall request to rlcp@library.Berkeley.edu
3. Articles will be delivered to you electronically. You will receive email instructions that explain how to download your requests. Books and other hard copy materials will be delivered to your library in about a week.

UT Austin Researchers:
1.  Request from UC Berkeley via UT Austin Interlibrary Borrowing.
2.  Articles will be delivered to you electronically. You will receive email instructions that explain how to download your requests. Books and other hard copy materials will be delivered to your library in about two weeks.
