Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get a COPPUL card?
The COPPUL office does not issue cards directly to students or faculty from member libraries. You will need to arrange your card with the library at your home institution. Please see information on our Reciprocal Borrowing program.
My library is a member of COPPUL. How can I see the licenses my library participates in?
Go to the Licenses and Products section of our website, and the listing of Licensed Resources. Choose "Filter by Organization" at the top right of the page, and select your library from the drop-down list. This will show you all the COPPUL products licensed by your library.
I am a vendor or publisher. Is COPPUL interested in licensing my products?
See Information for Vendors.
Can my library join COPPUL?
There are two levels of membership in COPPUL, full and affiliate. Both are described in the Membership Section of our website.
My library already belongs to COPPUL. How do I get information about joining programs we don't currently participate in?
The criteria for participation in COPPUL programs varies. Some are operated on a pay-as-you-go basis, so there is an additional fee associated with joining. Please contact the COPPUL office. We'll be pleased to hear from you!
Do you have a document that would provide me with an overview of COPPUL?
