What is Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan is a service offered by the library that allows current Texas A&M University-Texarkana faculty, students, staff, alumni, Friends of A&M Library, Texarkana College students, faculty, staff and community to secure books or items that are not owned by the libraries. These items include book chapters, journal articles, thesis, conferences, dissertations, government and technical reports. Users can request an ILL electronically via the library Webpages and within some databases.
On average, it takes approximately 24-48 hours for your request to be processed. It will take at least 10 working days for us to receive your book.
One receiving is completed, you will be notified by the email address on your request that your item is available for pickup.
Therefore, the average turnaround time is 11-12 working days.
Before making a request, please search the library catalog, and e-books to make sure that the item is not available through at the TAMUT library.
Please allow ample time for your research needs!!
