Distance Education Services: Requesting Materials for Delivery

This guide will provide information about library services and research assistance for students in Texas State University classes at a distance

Interlibrary Loan-v

NOTE: Please see the Remote Services LibGuide for updates to ILL services during Spring 2020.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free lending service available to current Texas State students and employees. ILL borrows items from other libraries that Alkek Library does not own such as journal articles, books, DVDs, CDs—anything you might need for your research.

Use the online Interlibrary Loan request system ILLiad to order your ILL items. Enter as much information as you know about the item you need, and the ILL staff will try to track it down.

Depending on the type of item you're requesting, turnaround times vary—to be safe, plan to wait a few business days for an article and at least a week for a book.

Contact & Pick-up Info: Items can be picked up at the 3rd floor Checkout Desk. Please call 512-245-4893 or email with additional questions.
