Master of Science in Nursing: Family Nurse Practitioner: Interlibrary Loan & TexShare Card Program

What Can I Do With a TexShare Card?

TexShare is a cooperative borrowing system among Texas academic and public libraries. A TexShare card allows you to check out materials from other participating libraries at no additional cost. Other libraries reserve the right to deny checkout of certain materials. When using a TexShare card users must go to the library holding the item and must return it directly to that library. All current Texas State University students, faculty, and staff in good standing are eligible to receive a TexShare card free of charge.

An alternative to using a TexShare card is using the University Library's Interlibrary Loan service.

What is Interlibrary Loan?

Interlibrary Loan is a service we offer to borrow 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 contact the RRC Library.

*Sign in to Interlibrary Loan with you NetID and password.

Requesting Items through Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)

Texas State University uses the ILLiad system to handle Interlibrary Loan (ILL) requests.  If a request is successful physical items may be picked up at the RRC Library.  You can designate in your profile which locations you would like as your "home" location.

ILL items cannot be delivered to off campus locations.

If the lending library scans an item, such as an article, you will be able to access the material online.
