The library is located on the second floor of the Marvin Burt Liberal Arts Center. It is building M on the campus map.
Materials in the Clarence Mitchell Library generally check out for 3 weeks. Items placed on Reserve for course use may have short checkout times or may be restricted to library use only. Items from other PrairieCat items usually check out for 3 weeks. Media from other libraries such as DVDs may sometimes have 1 or 2 week loan periods.
Overdue materials are charged at 10 cents per day per overdue item. Fines for overdue items from our Reserve collection are 50 cents an hour (for hourly loans) or a dollar a day (for items that may leave the library). Lost materials are charged based on the replacement cost for the item and vary according to material.

When Highland students, faculty and staff need library resources beyond the PrairieCat catalog, they may request interlibrary loan (ILL) of books or articles. Interlibrary loan is a service that enables users to borrow materials owned by libraries beyond PrairieCat, from Illinois libraries or libraries throughout the country. An ILL request form is embedded in the links to resources in our databases which are not full text. If you have not located the items in our databases you may still request them via ILL. Contact the library for assistance with Interlibrary Loan.
