Placing Holds on Winterstein Library Material
Can’t find one of our books, journals or other resources? Place a hold on the item through the online catalog. (Instructions: Search, click on title, select “Place Hold” on left side of item record, enter library card number and PIN, select “Place Hold.”)
If you require a journal article or book from another library, you can request it by filling out the interlibrary loan request form below. Before submitting your request, you must check the NUHS online catalog and/or the NUHS Journal Holdings List and the database A-to-Z for availability in your NUHS library. Any requests for materials available at your NUHS location will be returned to you.
Do you know a good book, journal, AV, or electronic resource that the James F. Winterstein Library doesn’t own? Recommend it for purchase by filling out a Recommendation Form. We will try to purchase it if funds are available. (Also available at the Circulation Desk.)
The James F. Winterstein Library faculty and staff can help you use the Winterstein Library. Contact the reference librarian or the student reference assistant if you wish to schedule in-depth instruction for yourself or a group (e.g. how to search a database, how to search the catalog).
