Interlibrary loan FAQ

TRLN Direct

TRLN Direct is a service used to quickly fill interlibrary loan requests from Duke, NC Central, and UNC Libraries. NC State University users will submit requests through Tripsaver request pages, and our staff will try to locate the item at a TRLN Library. If available, we will move the request to the TRLN Direct system for delivery in 1-2 business days. Items filled through TRLN Direct will be available at your preferred pickup location for 10 days after receipt; check out for 120 days with no renewals to faculty, graduates, and staff, 30 days with 3 renewals to undergraduates; and are visible in the "NC State / TRLN Direct" section of "My Account."
