Getting Started

HIP stands for Horizon Information Portal, and is our new library online catalogue. This simple users guide will help you use our catalogue effectively.

To use all features of the online catalogue, you must hold a barcoded library card. If you do not have a barcoded library card, you can still use the catalogue, but can not access features such as, renewing materials, and placing holds.

Our catalogue is accessible from any computer that has Internet access. Any patron or person can utilize our catalogue to search for various materials. However, some tasks such as placing holds, and renewing borrowed materials require that you are registered at one of our automated libraries.
