North Carolina A&T State University distance education students may request library materials held in or by the F.D. Bluford Library, as well as materials held by other libraries. There is no charge for this service. Bluford Library cannot mail books or journal articles to an individual's residence. However, we will send a book or journal article directly to a university or community college library closest to you. Additionally, our distance education students may take advantage of our Cooperative Library Lending Agreement that allows our students to borrow books from any of the 16 constituent libraries of the University of North Carolina.
When you need materials that are not available at the Bluford Library, you can request an interlibrary loan or document delivery service. See our Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery page for information.
Loan Length & Due Dates
Due dates for items will vary based on which library is loaning it to you. Always note the due date for each item because you are responsible for any fines if the lending library does not receive the item back before the due date.
Renewals are not automatic and must be requested from the library that owns the item. Renewals may not be possible on some items. Contact the Access Services Department for assistance.
When using many of these resources off-campus, you may be prompted to enter a username and password. The username will be your first and last name and the password will be your Banner ID#.
