The Legislative Library offers Interlibrary Loan service to our Patrons who have borrowing privileges. Our staff will borrow materials (books, newspaper and journal articles) from other libraries.
The Legislative Library is open to the public for study and research purposes; however, circulation privileges are limited to Legislators and legislative staff.
The Library staff provides reference and research assistance in the Library and by email or by telephone. We will help you locate specific information, select appropriate resources, guide you in the most effective use of information resources or refer you to other sources.
The Library staff offers a variety of training opportunities for NCGA members and staff to learn to use the Library’s information resources effectively. We will come to your office and provide one-on-one training or you are welcome to attend a formal class. Click here for class descriptions.
