Log in to ILLiad to make an Interlibrary Loan request
Interlibrary Loan is a Library lending service available to current TXST students and employees. ILL borrows items from other libraries that Alkek Library does not own.
This service is free to current Texas State students, faculty, and staff. Typical turnaround for a book is 2 weeks. Turnaround time for articles varies depending on format (hard copy or electronic) but averages 2 to 3 days.
You may pick up items at the Checkout Desk on the 2nd floor all hours the library is open.
Please return items to the Checkout Desk/Reserve Desk on the 2nd floor.
Interlibrary Loan staff is available M-F 8a.m. to 5p.m. Call the ILL office: 512.245.4893

After you've found a book in the catalog, you'll need to find it on the shelf. Each book has a Library of Congress call number that identifies where exactly it's located.
Library of Congress call numbers should be read one line at a time as follows:
Example of a complete call number, DA 36 .A55:
1. First, look at Line 1:
Books are arranged in alphabetical order, by the letters on the first line of the call number.
Example: first come all the D call numbers, then all the DA call numbers, then DB, etc.
2. Next, look at Line 2:
Within the DA call numbers, books are arranged in number order.
The numbers are arranged in numerical from low to high.
3. Then look at Line 3:
Line 3 of the call number has a letter and a number. The letters are in alphabetical order. Then read the numbers—but BEWARE!
The numbers are not whole numbers, they are DECIMAL numbers.
Example: A55 is read as A .55—this is why A55 comes before A6 (A .55, A .6, A .65, etc.)
