Organizational Development: Off-Campus Access

Find Materials at Other Libraries

You may find yourself needing a book or journal article that we do not have readily available to you. In these cases, you have options.

- Order journal articles and books using our interlibrary loan (ILLiad) system. Once you submit a request, we will find a library that has the item. When it arrives, we will send you an email. Journal articles arrive electronically, usually in a few days. Books must be picked up at Mabee Library.

You may visit other libraries such as UTSA or UT Health San Antonio to use their databases and materials on-site. Be sure to call the library in advance to ask about guest access.

You may obtain a TexShare card from the Reference Desk and use it to check out books from other libraries in Texas. To find which libraries have a particular item, use WorldCat.
