If the library does not own an item you need for research, teaching or study, you may request it through the InterLibrary Loan service. This free service allows user to borrow materials from other libraries and pick them up at the first-floor Access Service desk.
Distance learners at NSU have borrowing privileges at college and university libraries throughout the state of Virginia with a (Virtual Library of Virginia Network Consortium, VIVA) reciprocal borrower's card. Currently enrolled students and active faculty and staff members at NSU who are in good standing with the Lyman Beecher Brooks Library may request a Consortium borrower's card. Contact the Circulation Department at (757) 823- 2418.
Visit the VIVA webpage for more information, including a list of Virginia libraries that participate in the VIVA program.
If another college library is closer than the Lyman Beecher Brooks Library, a Tidewater Consortium Card might work for you.
As a NSU student, you have library check out privileges at other academic institutions that participate in the Virginia Tidewater Consortium.
If you wish to check out materials at another academic library in the Tidewater area, bring a picture ID to the LBB Circulation Desk to apply for a Consortium Card. You'll need to apply once each semester to verify that you're a current NSU student.
