The library provides two rooms for group or individual study. The rooms are available to all students and employees on a first-come, first-served basis. Make reservations for these rooms at the library’s circulation desk or by calling Saundra Voegel at (270) 831-9760. Reservations are for two-hour blocks during regular library hours.
Both study rooms are located on the second floor of the library. The first study room (Room Number 204) is located next to the stairwell, diagonally across the hall from the upstairs classrooms. The second study room is the Patsy Y. Thomas Special Collections Room and is located next to Katie Griffis’ office (Room 202). Alternately, you can view a map of the library for this information.
If you can’t find the material you need in our library or through our online databases, you can request material from another library. To search for material in other libraries, use the WorldCat database service, provided by OCLC. The WorldCat database is available through any computer that has a Henderson Community College IP address. Currently enrolled students and Kentucky residents may also access WorldCat with a password provided by the Library. (To learn how to use WorldCat, please join the library’s Information Literacy eCommunity in Blackboard. You will find the WorldCat tutorial under the “Databases” tab.
Renewal requests are possible; however, materials obtained through Interlibrary Loan are not the property of Hartfield Library. The lending library has the right to deny a renewal request or recall the book before the due date. We will submit a renewal request if the book is not marked "Renewal not allowed." Please contact the ILL Department at least five (5) business days before the due date listed on the band of the book to see if the material was renewed.
The library generally does not charge students or faculty/staff for ILL services; however, some charges from other libraries can be substantially prohibitive. In such cases, we reserve the right to contact the requesting party for support with additional charges that Hartfield Library is unable to absorb or the library has the right not to process a request under these possible conditions.
Any questions regarding ILLs should be directed to Kevin Reid. Kevin is available by email or phone (270) 831-9766.
