Books may be returned to Dinand Library front desk OR the ILL department in Dinand Library, for return to the WAM Library on the MLS shuttle. 

Because of the specialized nature of the WAM library, the staff reserves the right to limit the books that are checked out with regard to price, fragility, or uniqueness.   

Please note that HC students and staff can also make copies of materials in the WAM library, free of charge; please ask the librarian for the key to the copier.
