Get It For Me

Get It For Me will continue purchasing electronic articles and book chapters via document delivery when available.

We encourage users with borrowed Interlibrary Loan items to hold onto those until the Libraries reopen. We will waive fines for overdue materials.
Borrowing both physical and electronic items from lending libraries is not available since many libraries are closed or offer only limited services

We can find any library item you need – let us get it for you!

  • Interlibrary loan
  • Document delivery, in e-format

This service is available at no charge for eligible UTSA students, faculty and staff.

How long will it take?

Typically you'll hear back from us within two business days of making your request. If we need to purchase your item or borrow it from another library, it may take up to 10 days to arrive. Please note, it may take longer than usual to fill requests due to closures at our partner libraries.

If your request is time sensitive, or for items showing as "On Order," email us at ill@utsa.edu for assistance.
