Did you know that these local universities have cooperative agreements between their libraries ? Duke students, faculty and staff can use their Duke ID cards to check out books at UNC, NC State, or NCCU, and vice versa, for example.
Now TRLN (the Triangle Research Libraries Network) has launched a new catalog that has a unified search for the collections of all the schools’ libraries. You can request delivery between the schools, which is expected to take 48 hours.
Search TRLN has a number of exciting new features:
Browse by call number
Look at books recently added to the collections
Limit to types of libraries (i.e. law only)
Refine your search by format, subject, etc.
It still has the support you’re used to:
Ask a Librarian
Live chat help
We’ll be posting some more detailed suggestions and web tutorials for how best to use this new catalog in the coming weeks. Right now, give it a try! Leave a question or a tip in comments.
