The library's online catalog searches, not just items available at HPU Libraries, but items available at libraries in our area (Triad Academic Library Association) and libraries around the world. If you find an item in our catalog that is not available at HPU, you may be able to go to a local TALA library and check it out, or request to borrow it from another library through Interlibrary Loan.
If we don't have a book or an article that you need, we can request it for you from another library through Interlibrary Loan. This process typically takes 1-2 weeks for books and 1-3 days for articles.
Need it in a hurry? Through the Triad Academic Library Association (TALA), you can go to any of the participating libraries and use your HPU Passport to check out materials; you can also 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!
