Public Libraries 

HGST students are encouraged to obtain a library card from their local public library branch: Houston Public Library (http://houstonlibrary.org/), Harris County Public Library (http://www.hcpl.net/) or libraries from any of the surrounding counties. The public library provides free Interlibrary Loan service as well as access to many journal databases that require a username/password.
