  • Amazon Kindle User-Selected Collection
    User selected popular books are available on 54 Amazon Kindle readers. Go to the eBook reader lending web page and click on the "Request" button. NCSU users must authenticate using their Unity ID. Select "Amazon Kindle" device. From that point, you may enter a title if you have a specific request or, if you wish to simply check out a Kindle, leave the title blank. The NCSU Libraries will send you an email when your Kindle is ready to pick up for a one week loan. It will contain the title(s) you selected and all previous titles selected for that reader.
