In order to meet specific research needs of students, faculty, and staff, the library offers an Interlibrary Loan service. Through this service, HGTC Library patrons may borrow materials from other libraries throughout the country. You can request an Interlibrary Loan with this form, or by speaking with a library staff member.
Interlibrary Loan Guidelines
- Interlibrary loan services are available for HGTC students (students must be enrolled in credit or continuing education classes), faculty, and staff.
- Faculty, staff and administrators may request books, non-book materials including videos, CDs, DVDs, etc. and photocopies of articles from journals and magazines.
- Students may request books and photocopies of articles from journals and magazines. Students may not request videos.
- Patrons may submit up to 3 requests at one time.
- In most cases, we are able to borrow from libraries which do not charge a fee. However, if a lending library does charge a fee and you still would like the item, you will be responsible for paying this fee.
- You will be notified by telephone and/or e-mail when the item arrives at the library.
- Items must be returned by due date indicated on the item. Overdue items will accrue fines. Patron is responsible for lost or damaged items.
- This service is a privilege. HGTC Library reserves the right to revoke this privilege if abused.
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be libel for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law. Copyright law limits the number of articles photocopied to five from any given periodical published in the previous five calendar years.
