Interlibrary Loan is commonly available through public libraries all over the United States, as well as through the Amberton Library. These libraries can borrow books and/or acquire photocopies of journal articles that are not a part of their collections. There will usually be no cost to the library user for the load. Go to your local public library and ask for “Interlibrary Loan” at the Information or Reference Desk or call the Amberton Library at 972-279-6511 extension 185.
