ILL/TexShare: Borrow from Another Library

If you need to borrow a book or article from another library, you will find the necessary forms in this guide.

Can't find it at MCC?

You can check out books and articles from other libraries, if we don't have the item you need, in the following two ways:

TexShare Card: The MCC Library, through the Texas State Library, can issue a TexShare card to you for use at participating libraries in Texas.

Interlibrary Loan: Through ILL, our library can borrow materials from other responding libraries on your behalf.  You can submit an online request for books or articles using our forms.
