Can't Find What You Need?
If we do not carry what you need, there are two ways of getting those resources:
TexShare is a program where you can check out books from any other library in the state of Texas. Ask at the Circulation Desk for a TexShare card. If you need help locating the closest library that does have the resource you need, ask a Reference Librarian. We are always happy to help in whatever way we can.
InterLibrary Loan brings the resources to you, right here at the Ozuna Library. All you have to do is let us know what you need and we will have it sent here for you to check out. Please keep in mind that this service can take some time. We have to find a library willing to send us the resource and wait for it to arrive. InterLibrary Loan can take one to two weeks, so give yourself plenty of time to do your research in advance of the project due date.
