Developmental Education: Finding Books

ILL - FADS/GRADS - TexShare

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free library lending service available to current TxState students and employees. ILL borrows items from other libraries that the Alkek Library does not own. Use ILLIAD, the online interlibrary loan request system, to order your ILL items. Typical turnaround for a book is 1-2 weeks nad must be picked up at and returned to the library. Articles are sent to requestors via email. 

Contact & Pick-up Info: 512.245.4893  Items can be picked up at the Checkout Desk on the 3rd floor of the Library. 

GRADS and FADS are related services for graduate students and faculty. If we own a journal in print, ILL staff will scan the article for you and email the document out to you. 

A TexShare card is free for all current Texas State students and employees and provides borrowing privileges at participating libraries.
