If an item is currently checked out to someone else, you can put a hold on it by logging into the library catalog, searching for the book, and then clicking the “Request” button that appears on the item record webpage. The patron with item checked out then has up to seven days to return the book to the library. You will be emailed as soon as the item has been returned and it is available for you to check out.
The library building and its collections are open to the general public. Tri-College students, staff, and faculty may check out materials with an institutional ID. Community members may check out materials by obtaining an NDSU Libraries Special Permit available at the Main Library Circulation Desk or at the Branch Libraries.
The ILL department should email your NDSU account when your library items have arrived. You can also call the ILL service desk at 231-8885.
NDSU Faculty, Staff and Students may request material by using the Pull Service request form (note: this is the preference for requesting PDF or photocopies) or by using the “Request Select Item” feature in the library catalog for a physical copy. Off Campus materials are available for use by visitors. Please e-mail email@example.com to request items.
Note: Requested documents, if available, will be delivered within 24 hours and can be picked up at the Circulation desk in the Main Library.
Group study rooms are available at the library. Groups of two to six students may check out a key for a study room at the Circulation Desk. The room will be checked out for four hours and can be renewed for additional time if no other groups are waiting for a room. The group study rooms can also be reserved in advance. Make arrangements online or at the Circulation Desk. For problems booking a group study room, call the Circulation Desk at 231-8888. If a reserved room is not used within 30 minutes of the reservation, it may be made available to others.

Newspaper articles can be a good source of up-to-date information on virtually any topic. They are also considered to be primary sources since they are often the first published account of an event. To find newspaper articles, try searching online indexes available on the newspapers guide.
If you know which subject area you want to search in, you can use the Subject Guides tab on the front page. Otherwise you can conduct a simultaneous search of multiple online databases.
