Getting You the Books that You Want

Students! Have you ever tried to find a book, only to learn that it is currently checked out? Be next in line to check out the book by putting it on Hold. You can put books on Hold by asking the Library staff to do so for you or by logging into Destiny and placing the Hold yourself. (username: lastname_studentID# / password: birthday YYYYMMDD)


We can also borrow books from other campuses if HMS doesn't have the book you want. Speak to the Library staff today about getting you the books you want to read!

Take a Book - Leave a Book Cart

This is a "recycling" program for books. If you have books at home that you are finished with and no longer want, you can add them to the cart. Then, if there are books on the cart that you would like to read, you can take those books!
