About ILL Borrowing (for UNCSA students, faculty and staff)

About ILL Lending (for other libraries)

The UNCSA Library lends our circulating music items to libraries throughout the country and around the world if we are able. We loan books, music books, music scores, and CDs. We may loan some LPs and music DVDs/videos on a case by case basis. Individuals not affiliated with a college or university library should make their requests through their local public library.

We do not charge for loans and rarely charge for copies unless it is for something in excess of 50 pages; then it is $.10 per page for the overage.

The loan period is five weeks. Renewals are allowed for most items for another five weeks. Some restrictions may apply for certain items, which will be specified upon lending.

Materials may be recalled at any time for use by our UNCSA patrons.

Interlibrary Loan requests may be made online through OCLC Resource Sharing (WS-ILL or ILLiad). Our OCLC library code is NZG.

We normally ship by UPS within a few days of receipt of the request. We can also send some items via fax or email.
