How do I make requests?

Fill out the request form for the desired resource . Most, if not all, of the identifying information must be provided by the patron in order to acquire the requested item. Each request should be an item that is available in print and in  library. Resources that are already digital are not eligible for this service.

 Once patron places the request, and library staff will then locate, scan and send the requested item to the patron. The item requested will be filled within 10 days, though staff availabilty could impact this. Requests are best made well in advance.

No request shall be more than two (2) chapters but not more than 20% of the entirety or up to two(2) articles of an issue.

Requests not filled out to include enough identifying information will not be filled.
