Interlibrary Loan

This is when you can't find the book at Hillsboro or through Limitless Libraries. You will need to create an account using your Limitless Libraries account information:

Library Card is Your Student ID#

Password is your MMDD (birthday)

Your pickup library is ZMNPS... (it knows if you are a Hillsboro student and will send it to the school).

Most importantly!!! You need to follow all Due Dates. They will charge you for these books and there is no amount of Food Drive or Fine forgiveness available because these are books from actual Private & Public Universities. Be sure to make a copy of all bibliographic Information before returning.
