Borrowing Materials
Students, Faculty, & Staff at White Mountains Community College may borrow books from the library, and use the interlibrary loan service. 

Community members may acquire a library card in order to borrow materials.  Fill out the Library Card Application and return to library staff.

Reserve Titles Library Use Only (generally)

Materials may be renewed unless there are holds on them.

Overdue Materials
Borrowers who have not returned their materials by the due date will receive a notice from the Library. Failure to return materials in a timely manner may result in a replacement fine.  All materials must be returned and any fines paid by the end of the semester, or a hold will be placed on the student’s account resulting in delayed grades, diploma, registration, etc.

Course Reserves
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.

Requesting Materials from other Libraries
Books, articles, and other materials that we don't own may be requested through the Fortier Library's Interlibrary Loan service. Interlibrary loan can take up to three weeks to arrive, so plan accordingly.  Articles can be requested directly from the databases.  Article citations or books not found through the databases can be requested by contacting library staff through email, phone, or in-person.

Library Instruction
Librarians are available to teach library skills on a one-to-one basis, or to classes, by appointment. An instruction session ensures that you know what electronic databases the library has to offer, as well as how to use them most efficiently for your research.

Study Areas and Conference Rooms
The Fortier Library has three separate rooms set aside for private tutoring, group study, or conferences. These rooms are equipped with computers and Internet connections, and are available to students and staff on a sign-up basis.

The library has 25 computers available for use.  The library also has wireless access to the internet and printing.  All computer or network users must abide by the CCSNH Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy.

Printing and Copying 
The library has a variety of printers, including color printing.  Community members must pay for any pages printed.  A coin operated B&W copier is available for ALL library users
