Interlibrary Loan - TexShare

ILL and TexShare are two options for requesting items not available through the library.


Interlibrary Loan (ILL) borrows items from other libraries on behalf of students.  

You can request items through ILL using ILLIAD.

Books requested through ILL are delivered to the library with a typical turnaround time of 1-2 weeks.  Articles are delivered via email.

Students currently enrolled at Texas State may request a TexShare card in person at any of the University Libraries or online
