High School Library Borrowing Services and Guidelines
Pickler Memorial Library will make every effort to fill requests as they are received. The following guidelines will be followed:
Email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will also scan and email articles from our Reference Collection and, on a case-by-case basis, from our Special Collections.
All article requests are subject to copyright and licensing restrictions and are dependent on the condition of the materials.
*If you are unable to receive the articles via your school email address, photocopies can be faxed to you.
Books will be checked out to you for 30 days, which includes travel time. You will be able to renew items once for an additional 30 days if they are not needed by another user. The maximum number of books that can be checked out at any one time is 150. Under special circumstances, this policy may be altered.
Our first responsibility is to the faculty and students of Truman State University. Any request that we feel jeopardizes their access to the collection may be denied.

If you cannot find appropriate or adequate information on a topic through our Library Catalog, you may send a Subject Request to us.
Email your subject requests to email@example.com. Please be as specific as possible in what information is needed, including how many sources are needed and any conditions that apply (e.g., the student needs four sources about training rescue dogs and one of them has to be a journal article).
We will not use information outside of Pickler’s collections to fill any subject requests.
Please see our School Visits page for information about coming to our library for research. High Schools with a signed borrowing agreement are able to check out materials from their visit on the School Library card. This gives students a longer borrowing period than they would have with individual cards, and it lessens the paperwork before and during your visit.
