Library Services

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan is a cooperative program through which libraries make materials from their collections available to other users. UNH students, faculty and staff are eligible to use this service, which allows you to request books, videos, articles, reports and more.



On-campus Computers and Printing

 For local students, the Learning Commons houses desktop computers and offers laptops for students, faculty and staff to check out. We also provide a Windows workstation for Manchester community members, UNH alumni and other visitors, with a limit of one hour per day for each guest.


For local students, all Learning Commons workstations and laptops print to networked printers. UNH students and staff can send print jobs from their personal devices to the pay-to-print system via the website. Networked printers are located on the first floor and in the Learning Commons.


A self-service scanner is located across from the Learning Commons Help Desk. Scans can be saved to USB flash drive or emailed. When emailing, we recommend no more than 25 pages per PDF file.
