Inter-Library Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service we offer to Texas State University students and employees which borrows materials from other libraries on your behalf when the University Libraries cannot provide access to needed research materials.  Requests can be made for books, articles, DVDs, CDs, and more.  All you have to do is submit the request; the library will try to find a library that has a copy and work to borrow it on your behalf.  Always make sure to check our online catalog first before submitting an Interlibrary Loan request.  For additional assistance please use Ask a Librarian @ RRC.
