Checkout Policy »
You may contact the center (via telephone, fax, email, mail, live chat or the inquiry form) and request items for checkout. You will need to specify which items you would like to check out by giving the staff the author's name and the title of the material(s) that are of interest to you. The staff will then check the material out and mail it to you, or place it on reserve if you prefer to pick up the material(s) in person.
By borrowing the center's resources, you agree to check out no more than five items for any two-week period. The two-week period begins on the day of receipt. Once the items have been mailed to you will receive an email notification. You are required to notify us ("Reply" to the notification email) as soon as you receive the package. Materials must be returned no later then the fourth day following the end of two weeks. You are required to notify us of the date on which you mailed the package. The only cost that you will incur is the postage to mail the material back to the center.
Please be aware that the center will charge you for the cost of the resource if it is lost or not returned. If you wish to keep the material(s) longer, you are required to request an extension before the end of the two week period. Extensions and late fees will be assessed on a case by case basis.
NOTE: Our items are only available for checkout to users in Texas.
