Interlibrary Services at UT Libraries in Austin will obtain books or articles not owned by the Marine Science Library. The service is available for UT faculty, students and staff with a valid UT EID.

Before making any requests, verify material(s) by using the Library Catalog, or the Electronic Journals page.

ILS Login (UT EID) - Place requests, check status, view articles.

User information profile only needs to be set up once (Name, MSI address, etc.)
For Location Status: must select REMOTE DELIVERY 

When requesting book(s): leave the default as Main Campus Pickup Location PCL

Requested books will arrive at MSI's shipping/freighting office. 

THE ILS office has changed the way materials are returned to the library by our Remote Delivery patrons residing outside of the Austin area.

UT Libraries no longer supplies pre-paid, padded envelopes with materials shipped. With each loan, you will receive a paper pre-paid return label which should be placed on your own packaging. ILS is asking patrons to use boxes to protect the volumes during return shipping. 

This new process should cut down on the number of lost and damaged items. As always, you may elect to return materials via a commercial courier other than USPS if there is a recall deadline or due dates are fast approaching.

OTHER OPTION - The Marine Science Library will be happy to return the book for you.

 

Computers: Three PCs (UT EID access only) provide access to the online catalog, electronic resources and the internet. 1 computer connects to the library catalog only (no internet access).

Books: Open, browsable stacks; books are shelved by Library of Congress call numbers. New books are shelved at the end of the 1st range, nearest map cabinet.

Journals: Current journal issues are located at the front of the library, near the tables. All bound journals are shelved alphabetically by title, in rear compact shelving unit, continuing into stack area on the last range.

Reserves: Reserve books are located on the table next to staff office. Materials do not circulate and are library-use only. Use of materials must be recorded on clipboard.

Library Storage Facility: Some older journals are located at UT Austin's Library Storage Facility located in Austin. Holdings are indicated in the online catalog and can be retrieved for checkout.

Book drop off bin: Located in library directly across from entrance doors.

Copiers: The copier is located outside the staff office door.

Self-service book scanner (UT EID access) is available for patrons to use - scan to USB flash or email only; located next to copier.

Copyright restrictions:

The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Photocopies or other reproductions can be furnished only under certain specified conditions.
