Borrowing Materials from NAL
Eligible patrons may borrow directly from the library; others may obtain the resources through interlibrary loan via their local library. Information on lending services at NAL can be found on the Request Library Materials web page.
Note: Effective July 1, 2007 NAL has discontinued the direct service document delivery program for special affiliated food and nutrition programs (Expanded Patron category), which was previously supported by an interagency agreement. Individuals who previously used this service should submit requests through the interlibrary loan service of their local library.
