Interlibrary Loans (ILLs) and the TexShare Card program help GC library patrons; including students, faculty, and staff, borrow materials from other participating libraries. This gives them direct access to materials that the GC Library does not have readily available in the collection. In addition, the Galveston College Library provides free-to-access library resources and materials for our off-campus Distance Learners through the Material Delivery program.
To best serve our Distance Learners, the GC Library provides a material shipping service. This service can be used to have library books and resources mailed to your residence, in case coming to the library isn't a possibility. This service can also be used together with the Interlibrary Loan program to have materials shipped to you from our neighboring libraries!
To qualify for the Galveston College Library's material shipment service, off-campus distance learning students must meet the following criteria:
How to Use the Delivery Service:
With a TexShare Card, you can borrow books, music, and other library resources from any other participating TexShare library, just as if you were a cardholder there. For more information about the TexShare Card, please visit the Get a TexShare Card page.
