*  Although for-profit organizations are not our primary service group, we do provide resources and services as needed.  Because this is an extra service we provide outside of our regular mission, our interlibrary loan and document delivery fees are higher.  For specifics about charges for for-profit organizations, please call LHL Administration at (205) 934-5460.
