Submitting HWPEP Library Resource Requests: Home

Thank you

Thank you for helping facilitate access to library resources for HWPEP students. We all want to work together to provide great library resources to students in an efficient way, and following these best practices will help streamline the requests.

First, students will be offered three possible paper forms to fill out to request library materials or assistance. They should place their book and article requests on the separate Book and Article forms. If they want to ask a research librarian for additional help, there is a separate Research Help form they should fill out.

Please submit these digitally with each page scanned as a single page pdf. Once scanned, please email these to

Thank you for sharing them this way, as it streamlines the process once the library receives them. See below for advice on how to scan pages as individual pdfs, depending on what technology you are using.
