The TMC Library - Health Sciences Resource Center Logo

For TMC Library cardholders, routine services are supplied free, subject to the following terms:

A single user is entitled to a maximum of five free requests per day, not to exceed a total of 35 per semester. Further ILL requests will be filled at a rate of $5.00 each until semester’s end. Duplicate requests will be ordered at the expense of the patron.

(Note: Under exceptional circumstances, the Library may waive restrictions. Please contact the DD/ILL Department personally about a hardship or emergency.)

To better serve you, we seek to secure requests for materials unavailable from this Library immediately to reduce the delivery wait-time. Scans and copies of shelved or online materials in the Library’s own collection are handled as they come in.
