Five College Borrowing

If you need a book from a library on another Five College campus you can use the Request Item function in the Five College Library Catalog to have it delivered to the MHC library.

To use the Request Item service:

  • Go to the Full View of the item you want. (click on the item title, if you are in the List View)
  • Click the Request Item link (upper left).

You can check on the status of your request by logging back into your Account.

If available, the book will be delivered to the MHC library Circulation Desk usually within 2 weekdays. If the item can not be sent, because its use is restricted or it is not available, you will get a notice when placing your request.

NOTE:  For items listed as being in the Five College Library Depository, please use the Depository Request Forms.
