*Pharmacy Subject Guide: Your Library Account and Interlibrary Loan

What can you do with your library account?

Through your HPU Libraries account, you can: 

  • Review your checkouts, holds, and charges
  • Renew materials (except for items already overdue)
  • Place holds and have materials transferred to/from another location

What if I need a book the library doesn't have?

Interlibrary Loan 

If we don't have a book that you need, we can request it for you from another library through Interlibrary Loan. This process typically takes 1-2 weeks. 

You can also place requests for articles through Interlibrary Loan. We can usually get articles to you within 1-3 days. 

To request an item (book, article, or other) log into your HPUShare. More information about ILL and HPUShare can be found on the ILL page

Triad Academic Library Association 

Need it in a hurry? Through the Triad Academic Library Association (TALA), you can go to any of the libraries below and use your HPU Passport to check out materials:

In addition, members of the HPU community can check out materials from the High Point Public Library with your HPU Passport. 

We recommend calling the library first to find out what their policies are, to verify that the item is available, and to get information on where to park, etc. If you have additional questions, just ask us!
