TALA Borrowing Agreement

The member libraries of the Triad Academic Library Association (TALA) have entered into a borrowing agreement, enabling students and faculty in good standing at their home institutions to borrow from the other participating libraries.

Lending privileges (PDF) vary by institution. The agreement allows for students and faculty from each institution to borrow in person from the other institutions, and is a complement to Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Borrowed materials need to be returned to the originating library directly; see participating libraries' addresses (PDF).

Here are links to the participating libraries' catalogs:

Before visiting a participating institution, contact your home library to inquire about restrictions and policies. Also, call ahead to verify your eligibility to access what you seek from the library you plan to visit.
