Members of the community are welcome to use the LRC materials and services, excluding interlibrary loan service. In order to open a library account for checkout privileges, non-students must present a photo ID with a current address (utility bill will suffice, if current address is not on photo ID). For computer usage non-students must register in the lab login system at the circulation desk with their driver's license or military ID. Non-students may checkout a limit of five books and two DVDs at a time.
Faculty may place specific books on reserve for individual courses. Check your syllabus or with your instructor to determine if the item is on reserve. All reserve items can be checked out with a library barcode at the circulation desk and are to be used ONLY in the LRC for two hours. Promptly returning reserve materials is extremely important so that other students may have access to the materials.
Coastal and UNCW students may borrow materials not available at Coastal through the CCLINC interlibrary loan service. This service allows users to borrow circulating materials from other participating libraries for a three week period. If ILL renewals are needed patrons must bring the items to the circulation desk. Interlibrary loan requests may be submitted through the CCLINC online catalog. Patrons will be notified by email or phone when the items are available for pick up. For more information on how to place an interlibrary loan request, see our how-to guide here.
