Interlibrary Loan (ILL) materials are books, articles, or other items borrowed from other libraries for use by CTC patrons.
The ILL Department can locate books and journal articles which are NOT part of the CTC Library collection and arrange to have them sent here for you to use. You can check the Library Catalog for books and hard copy journals or our electronic resources for articles first.
Materials not available for loan:
Materials usually not available for ILL include: newspapers, reference items, current periodicals, bound periodical volumes, required textbooks, genealogical and local history materials, audiovisual materials, thesis, dissertations, microfilm/form.
How do I request an ILL?
Search for the item you are looking for in the Library Catalog.
TexShare is a state-funded program that allows participating libraries to extend free, reciprocal borrowing privileges to each other's patrons in an effort to provide direct access to materials not available at the home library.
How do I get a TexShare card?
Bring your current CTC ID and request one at the Hobby Memorial Library Circulation Desk. You must get a TexShare card from CTC before you can borrow materials from other institutions.
Where can I use it?
You can use your TexShare card at most libraries in the state of Texas. Check to see if the library you are interested in is a TexShare Participant and view their lending policy.
