If you want to request something you DON’T find in our catalog, try searching the NH Union Public Access Catalog or NHU-PAC (quicklink to the left of here). You can check to see if what you want is available anywhere in other New Hampshire libraries. Note that it WILL tell you about UNH, but it WON’T tell you what Dartmouth has. If you can’t find it, send us an  e-mail with the title, author if available, format (book, DVD, CD), publishing date if you know it. If you have the time, tell us how you heard about it. We’ll call you when it’s in or to tell you that we can’t get it for you, usually the former.
