Steps for making an
InterLibrary Loan Request

 
 
  1. Ascertain that the needed item is not in the Fasken LRC collection. Search
    e-Library for the needed book or journal.

  2. Ascertain that the needed item is not in TexShare or any other databases available to Midland College students.

  3. Verify that you have the correct and complete bibliographic information. Many items can be found once you get the author's correct spelling and/or the exact title. For journal articles verify that you have the journal's full title, correct volume, pages, and dates. You can use the TexShare databases as verification tools. (WorldCat for books, and other various databases for journal articles).

  4. Check nearby libraries (search their online catalogs). It might be faster for you to go to Midland County Library or UTPB for photocopies of articles.

  5. Obtain and completely fill out an ILL transaction form for each item needed. Provide as much information as possible, do not abbreviate.
