This service is free to Texas State students, faculty, and staff. Typical turnaround for a book is 2 weeks. Turnaround time for articles varies depending on format (hard copy or electronic) but averages 2 to 3 days.
Pickup and Return Information:
Pick up items at the Circulation Desk on the 2nd floor all hours the library is open.
