Get It For Me

If we don't have what you're looking for, there are ways to get books, articles and videos from other libraries. If you're not sure if we have something, feel free to Ask a Librarian!

Interlibrary Loan

We'll find you a copy of a book or article and have it delivered to our library for you to check out. For articles, you'll receive an electronic copy of the article. The delivery time varies, depending on how available the item is at other libraries.


If you're in a rush, we can issue you a TexShare card that you can use to check out books from other Texas libraries, including the University of Texas and Austin Community College.

Suggest a Purchase

If the book or video you need is something you think the library really ought to just own, go ahead and suggest a purchase, and we will see what we can do about adding it.
