Interlibrary Loan Information, Resources, and Policies

We Don't Own It But We Can Loan It.

What is ILL/Document Delivery?

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service offered to TAMU-CC faculty, staff, and students to provide materials from other libraries which the Mary and Jeff Bell Library cannot acquire for its own collection, or are currently in use by other patrons.

Document Delivery is a free service offered to TAMU-CC faculty, staff, doctoral students and distance learners to provide delivery of materials available from the Mary and Jeff Bell Library.

What's in this guide?

The Interlibrary Loan guide is designed to help you find research materials both online and in the library, to navigate the ILL webpages and forms, and to provide information about our policies and the services available to you.
