The Libraries circulate books, films, CDs, music scores, and technology (iPads, laptops, cameras, voice recorders) from service desks in Jackson Library and the Harold Schiffman Music Library. In addition, e-books are circulated online and materials are loaned to other libraries.
In 2015/16, annual usage of the UNCG Libraries' collections exceeded 3 million for the first time ever!
