Interlibrary Loan

If you need anything Bell Library doesn't own, Interlibrary Loan is the service that can find those materials to you!

Usually, we'll be able to get the material in a few days, but a hard copy (like a full book or journal issue) will take us a little longer.

Don't forget: If you are currently a registered Distance Learner with the Registrar's Office or designated as a Remote Researcher; you can have books from Bell Library’s Main Collection, and borrowed interlibrary loan materials, shipped directly to your home for free. We also supply a prepaid return label for your convenience.


Worldcat connects you to the collections of more than 10,000 libraries worldwide.  Materials that you find on Worldcat that are not owned by TAMUCC can be requested from other libraries.

Search Google Books

Many books published before the 1920s are available in full text via Google Books. These can be valuable for their historical perspective; many of them can serve as primary sources.
