Free Access to Millions of Books!

Did you know that CSD has access to the University of Vermont’s more than 1.39 million text and serial files—as well as a host of other materials—at no cost?

The district participates in a program through UVM where teachers can obtain a K–12 Educator Borrower Card. The cards allow educators at K–12 institutions in Vermont access to materials from the Bailey-Howe and Dana Medical libraries. This is a massive collection of texts, serial files, government documents, serial subscriptions, microforms, and much more.

While the materials borrowed from UVM’s libraries are for professional use and are not to be lent to students or colleagues, holders of a K–12 Educator Borrower Card may borrow up to ten books at a time, access the assorted non-circulating materials (including Special Collections), and use reference assistance and equipment.

Authorization forms and specific information about the program’s policies are available in Colchester’s schools. This is an incredible free resource available to our educators.
