Special member libraries according to service guidelines. School library
members are not eligible for the service.
Member libraries agree to designate a representative or representatives to
provide SCKLS with up-to-date contact information.

materials are not available for interlibrary loan or for deposit or bulk loan
to other individuals or entities.

Collections Service materials.

Collection Service materials loaned to its registered borrowers. In the event
of lost or damaged materials the Participating Library will contact Rotating
Collections Service staff regarding the status of the items.

result in a formal written warning from SCKLS which may serve as basis for
revocation of the service. Revocation of service and its duration is at the
