Curbside Services

The Harper Library staff offer very limited curbside circulation services to students, faculty and staff. Recommended safety guidelines and social distancing protocol are followed.

Students, faculty and staff must utilize the Library Management System to access their Library account and search, identify and then place online holds of needed item(s). Library staff will notify the requester when the item(s) are available. Requested items will be held for 14 days.

Follow this guide to learn how to place holds.

Students must utilize the Formstack to request technology loans.

Curbside services will take place in parking lot 2A (closest to the Algonquin Rd entrance between Avante and the Performing Arts Center).
