Circulation and copying
Books, pamphlets, and state documents in the North Carolina Stacks (call numbers in the online catalog say "Joyner NC Stacks;" call numbers on books say NoCar) circulate and can be checked out at the Circulation Desk on the first floor. Most other materials—reference books, rare books, maps, broadsides, microforms—do not circulate. Use your One Card or a copy card to make photocopies of printed materials or to print from the microfilm reader/printers. Copy cards can be purchased for $1 in the Reserve Room or in the Copyserve office in the basement of the West Wing. Copies are 10¢ each.
