interlibrary loan request system,
to order your ILL items.

It is free to use this service.
Typical turnaround for a
book is 1-2 weeks. If articles
are found in electronic
format,requests can be sent
to you via email.

Contact & Pick-up Info:

Items can be picked up at the Circulation Desk on the 2nd
floor of the Library.

Please call 512.245.4893 or
email
with additional
questions.

Search for Books & More in the Library:

Use the Library Catalog to search the main collection for print resources, multimedia resources, and ebooks. The Library Catalog also provides location and availability details.


When researching countries, books can be searched by first trying a Subject Search by country or region/continent looking of the available list of subtopics.  If an appropriate Subject does not exist for what you are looking for about your country, try a Keyword Search.
