Interlibrary Loan

The TMC Library Interlibrary Loan service provides you with book/audiovisual loans and high-quality copies of documents (primarily journal articles and book chapters) from materials NOT OWNED by the Library.

Cardholders and Non-Cardholders alike are welcome to use the Interlibrary Loan service. Non-Cardholders may only request non-returnables (i.e., journal articles or book chapters, etc.). There are fees associated with Interlibrary Loan for Non-TMC affiliated patrons.
