Education Resources: Finding Books

This guide provides a basic overview for students in the Teacher Education program.

1. Search St. Mary's University Catalog

Library Online Catalog

Once you find books in our catalog, and you have located them in our library, you may check them out with your St. Mary's Rattler ID at the Circulation Counter on the 2nd (Main) Floor. If you find online books, click on the link in the middle of the item's complete record to view the book or item. If you have questions, contact a librarian.

InterLibrary Loan: We Do the Walking

If our library does not have a book you want, St. Mary's University students, faculty and staff may order it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Be sure to allow up to two weeks to receive the ordered items.

TexShare: You Do the Walking

If our library does not have the book you want, and you want it right away and are able to visit another university library in Texas, you may be able to borrow the book directly from that library with a TexShare card. To get a TexShare Card, bring your Rattler ID card and visit the Blume Library Circulation counter before you visit the participating library. Be sure to check the participating library's web site for their hours.
