s 20324. Direct Loan.


This program of the Act enables library users to receive direct borrowing
privileges at libraries for which these people do not constitute the
primary clientele.
(a) Members of a regional library network are eligible to receive
reimbursement for extending direct borrowing privileges to people who are
not part of their primary clientele, but who are part of the primary
clientele of other members of its regional library network. Services shall
be provided in accordance with the protocols of the regional library
network.

(b) Members of a regional library network are eligible to receive
reimbursement for extending direct borrowing privileges to people who are
not part of their primary clientele, but who are part of the primary
clientele of other members of any regional library network statewide.
Protocols shall be established through subsequent rulemaking under the
provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (Chapter 3.5 of Division 3
of Title 2 of the Government Code, commencing at Section 11340).

(c) A library participating in a direct loan program under this Act shall
apply the same rules, policies, procedures, and fees related to borrowing
privileges to eligible borrowers from other institutions or public library
jurisdictions as are applied to individual members of its own primary
clientele. Where there are different categories of primary clientele with
different service levels, the library shall identify the service level
applicable to eligible borrowers from other institutions or public library
jurisdictions.

(d) Libraries participating in this program shall ascertain whether or not
each person requesting direct borrowing privileges is a member of its
primary clientele. If the person is a member of the library's primary
clientele, such services shall not be reimbursable under this Act.

(e) An eligible borrower shall hold a valid borrowers card (or equivalent)
issued by a member of a regional library network in recognition of his or
her status as part of the primary clientele of that institution or public
library jurisdiction.

(1) Any additional identification generally required by a library
of its own primary clientele may also be required.


(2) The lending library may also require the name and current
address of the borrower and the name and current address of the
institution or public library jurisdiction through which the
borrower is eligible for service.


(f) Contracts for loan and other services provided by an institution or a
public library jurisdiction to the primary clientele of another
institution or public library jurisdiction are not prohibited. Persons
served under such contracts shall be registered as part of the primary
clientele of the institution or public library jurisdiction providing the
contract service. No reimbursement for services provided under the terms
of such contracts shall be provided under this Act.

(g) Loan of a library material of any type by an institution or public
library jurisdiction to an eligible borrower shall result in reimbursement
from the state under Education Code Section 18844(c). Reimbursements shall
be equitable in that:

(1) each loan to an eligible borrower from a type of library
different from the lending library shall be reimbursed; and


(2) each loan to an eligible borrower from the same type of library
as the lending library shall be reimbursed on a net imbalance basis,
to the extent that the number of items loaned to its non-primary
clientele exceeds the number of items borrowed by its primary
clientele from other libraries of the same type.


(h) To obtain reimbursement, an institution or public library jurisdiction
shall provide to the state board an invoice detailing its provision of
direct loan services for the appropriate period. For audit purposes, a
record of these invoices shall be retained for four years.

(i) Reimbursable costs are those handling costs incurred by the lending
library in processing a direct loan under the provisions of this Act.

(j) The reimbursement formula and procedures shall be established through
subsequent rulemaking conducted under the provisions of the Administrative
Procedure Act (Chapter 3.5 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government
Code, commencing at Section 11340).
