Non-Bennett Borrowers

NC-PALS Consortium Borrowers

Current students, faculty, and staff in good standing at Greensboro College, Guilford College, and Salem College and Academy may request and check out General Stacks, Special Collections, and Audio-Visual materials from the Holgate Library at Bennett College. You may pick up materials yourself or you may request that materials be delivered to you at your home institution's library. Requested items typically ship from the Holgate Library in 1 to 3 business days. Borrowing and circulation privileges are the same for consortium borrowers as for Bennett College students, faculty, and staff. 

If you intend to pick up materials yourself, you are strongly advised to call the Circulation Desk in advance at 336-517-2139 to verify the availability of materials.

Bennett College holdings appear in the NC-PALS Catalog. Please follow your home institution's guidelines for submitting hold requests for Bennett College materials.


Triad Academic Library Association (TALA) Borrowers

Students, faculty, and staff of all TALA member colleges and universities may directly borrow materials from the Holgate Library at Bennett College. Borrowing directly requires that you pick up and return materials yourself, and that you present your current college or university ID at the time of checkout.

Borrowing and circulation privileges for TALA borrowers are outlined in the TALA Privileges Chart. Individuals who borrow materials from Bennett College are solely responsible for any fines accrued due to loss, damage, or late return of materials.

To borrow materials, bring your current college or university ID to the Circulation Desk. Inform the librarian on duty that you are a current student, faculty, or staff member at a TALA member institution, and that you want to borrow materials. Library staff may call your home institution to verify your current enrollment/employment status and good standing. Once you are verified, you will complete registration and be able to check out materials. Below is a list of TALA member institutions:

All Interlibrary Loan (ILL) materials lent to borrowers at other institutions are arranged through the ILL or Document Delivery service of the borrower's home institution.
