Circulation staff provides information on how users can borrow library materials
from the NCSU Libraries as well as from other libraries. They can explain loan,
recall, and fine policies, provide borrowing privileges to students, faculty and
staff from NCSU and from institutions with which NCSU has reciprocal
borrowing privileges, and search for books that cannot be found in the
bookstacks. Behind the desk are materials placed on reserve by N.C. State

only be checked out for short-term use by currently registered NCSU students
and faculty members.
