Suspension of Library Privileges
Students who fail to respond to overdue notices within the allotted time or fail to pay for replacement of lost materials will find their library privileges suspended. A Banner Hold will be placed on the student's account, until such time as the items are returned or payment is made for lost items.
Some of the books and videos which are required reading for White Mountains Community College students are placed on reserve by our faculty. Reserves generally do not circulate and must be signed out for use in the library.
To request a book, DVD, or other material that would be returned:
If at the Berlin campus: see a member of the library staff.
If at the Conway or Littleton Academic Centers or any other location:
- see a member of the Academic Center staff if applicable OR
- use the library's Contact Us form, giving as much information as possible about the item you'd like to request, author, title, date, edition, etc.
To request an article from a magazine or periodical using EBSCOhost:
The easiest and fastest way is to find an article in EBSCOhost that you would like access to for which there is no full text, click on "click here to request through interlibrary loan" and fill in the requested information on the page that comes up, making sure to include how you would like the article delivered (e-mail, fax, etc.).
We will do our best to get you the information you need as quickly as possible, but it can take up to a couple of weeks so please plan accordingly! We will contact you when your requested material has arrived.
