How to Borrow from a GPACU Library

Search the GPACU Library or the statewide catalog MaineCat to find out if they have what you need.

UNE Students, Faculty & Staff

Go to the GPACU library in person and present your UNE ID card. Your UNE library record must be free of any fines or overdue items for you to be able to borrow from a GPACU library.

If you are from another GPACU School

Individuals with a valid ID from a GPACU school may borrow UNE library items during the hours we are open to the public.

Loan Times

The individual GPACU libraries will use their own borrowing policies to set loan times. Their policies may vary and may be different from UNE Libraries’. Visit their library websites or contact the libraries for more information.

Where can I return a GPACU item?

GPACU items must be brought back to the GPACU library they were borrowed from. UNE borrowers cannot return GPACU items to the UNE Libraries.
