Getting Library Books

How do you get a book once you find a reference to it in the catalog?

If it's supposed to be at UHM:

  • If its location is Hamilton Hawaiian or Hamilton Pacific, use the Get This Item link in Voyager to request that it be brought out for you.
  • Otherwise, go to the library and get it. (Actually, you can use the Get This Item/Hold or Transfer option to ask us to pull it from the shelf for you, but it takes a day or so. Pick up non-Hawn/Pac books at the main circulation desk on the first floor.)
  • If it's not on the shelf, ask someone to help you find it.
  • If we can't find it, ask us to borrow it from somewhere else.

If it's supposed to be at another UH System library:

  • Request that it be sent here from the other UH System library. Use the Get This Item/Hold or Transfer This Item options in Voyager.
  • Or you can pick it up from that library yourself (quicker).

If it's at another library:
