Returning Items

  • You may return books and DVDs to the book drop near the top of the stairs by the front entrance.

Access to Physical Books and DVDs

The library is offering digitization (scanning) of pages or chapters from books and touchless checkout & pickup of books and DVDs.

Placing a Request Through a Librarian (UH & WCC students, faculty, and staff)

Contact a WCC librarian via phone, text, email, or chat. The librarian will work with you to determine if digitization or pickup is best. If just a few pages or chapters are needed, Library staff will scan them and email them to you in PDF format. If you need more than a few chapters, the staff will check out the item to you. It will be placed in a locker by the Library entrance and you'll be given the code to open the locker. 

Placing Requests Online (WCC students, faculty, and staff)

Log in to the Library Catalog to place a request for a locker checkout (Request This Copy) or to Request Partial Digital Scan.
