Request items from other ACC Libraries

Interested in requesting a book or DVD at another campus be sent to your preferred campus library? Did you find that the perfect source for your paper is on the shelf at your campus library, and want to be sure it isn't checked out before you arrive? You can now easily request a specific copy of that title be held or sent to any ACC Library!

Note: You cannot request textbooks from the Student Support Textbook Collection online.

Search the ACC Library Search Tool on the Library Homepage to find materials on your topic of interest.

After you have found the item you want, click on the title of the item.

On the next detail screen, you will see an option to “Request this copy” in the holdings grid. Click on the copy you want to request.

Login using your ACCeID and password. Other users, such as TexShare borrowers, use their ACC ID# or barcode, and their assigned password.

Choose the campus location where you plan to pickup your item. Click on the Request Item button.

After submitting the request, you will receive message whether the request is successful

 or not successful and why.

Note: When an item such as a Textbook is unavailable to be requested, a message like this one will appear.

When the item is ready for pickup, you will receive a message at your ACC email address.

NOTE on books/videos at other libraries: Items are pulled from shelves only once each morning (M-F). Campus mail delivery may take 2-4 days. If you require faster service -- or, if you have not heard from us within 10 days -- contact the library directly. Also note that items are not always returned by their due dates.  Items On Order will take longer.

NOTE on requesting books/videos that are checked out: Items are not always returned by their due dates. 

If you wish to suggest or request that a new title be purchased for the library, you can find more information here.

If you have any questions, you can get help 24 hours a day on our Ask a Librarian page
