Are you teaching a course in the Spring and want to make sure your course materials will be available for your undergraduate students? Partner with the Libraries and help us make course materials available to all students through course reserves, purchasing, and the FLI Partnership Lending Library. For more support, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Columbia FLI Partnership Library is a collection of textbooks and other course materials available to low-income and/or first-generation students from one of Columbia University’s undergraduate schools: Columbia College (CC), the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and General Studies (GS), as well as students from Barnard College (BC). Students who identify as first-generation and/or low-income may register to borrow materials from the collection for extended loan periods by filling out the FLI Partnership Libraries Access Form. The purpose of this form is to create a confidential channel for requesting access to the FLI library, while ensuring that the collection serves its primary audience of FLI undergraduates. Columbia’s FLI Partnership Library is located in Butler Library. Barnard also maintains its own FLI Partnership Library in Barnard Library, and qualified Columbia undergraduates may borrow from that collection as well.
Students may access the collection by searching by location for “Columbia FLI Partnership Library” or “Barnard FLI Partnership Library” in CLIO. Additionally, they may browse both collections by searching for “FLI Partnership Library.” Next, students may check out books from our FLI partnership collections by using the Libraries’ pick-up options.
