Borrowing privileges are available to the following groups:

  • Faculty, students, and staff at UNC-Chapel Hill may borrow materials using their UNC One Card.
  • Faculty, students, and staff affiliated with Triangle Research Libraries universities (Duke, NCCU, and NCSU), UNC System schools, and North Carolina community colleges may use their school identification card to register for borrowing privileges.

Borrowing privileges for non-affiliated patrons:

  • Borrowing privileges are also available to North Carolina residents, including attorneys and law professionals.
  • For an annual fee of $25.00, outside borrowers are issued a non-affiliated library borrower's card and may use this card to check out books at any of the UNC-Chapel Hill campus libraries.
  • All fields of the borrower’s card application must be complete and signed by the borrower. All information is secured and only used for library purposes.
  • During the first year a new non-affiliated borrower who purchases a card is limited to a total of five books checked out at any one time for the first year they have the borrower's card. After one year the limit on the number of items checked out may be lifted when the card is renewed for a second year.
