Does it Circulate?

The State Library's collections contain both circulating and non-circulating items.  The catalog lists the status of all non-circulating items as "checked in."  Use this table to help determine whether items will circulate or not.  Although you cannot borrow non-circulating items, you will be able to use them at the library.

C=circulating, NC=non-circulating.
