InterLibrary Loan Request

InterLibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service we offer all our patrons – students, faculty, staff, and courtesy/TexShare card holder. If Vaughn Library does not have a copy of a particular book, click on the link to take you to the ILL request form. Fill in the fields for requesting a book and follow the online instructions to submit your request. Book requests can take up to three weeks to fulfill. Vaughn Library will notify the requestor that the book is available for pick-up at the Circulation Desk. The patron must make sure to bring the ILL book back by the date indicated on the front sleeve placed on the book.

If you wish only a few pages from a book, indicate that on the form. This will significantly speed up the filling of your request in that the specified pages can be scanned and emailed to your specified email address – usually within 3-5 days.

If you wish to request an article from a magazine/journal, fill in the pertinent fields. Many times, your request for an article can be filled within 48 hours. If you give a valid email address (one that you frequently check), the article can be emailed directly to your preferred email address.

All InterLibrary Loan requests are subject to any and all copyright restrictions. For questions regarding InterLibrary Loan, contact Lilly Smith at 903-510-2645 or lsmi2@tjc.edu .
