  • If the item you are looking for is at the Sherman Library and does not say “Library Use Only” you can request that it be delivered to the HPD Library and held for you to check-out.
  • If the item you are looking for is in Reserve you can come in and check-out the item for 3 hours Library Use Only
  • If the item you are looking for not available in print or electronically you can request an Interlibrary Loan and we will try to get it from another Library. This free service will take some time, so plan ahead.
