Requesting Items from Alkek, the Archives and Research Center (ARC) or the Music Library
Items in the library catalog that can be requested, have a blue Request/Hold button at the top right side of the catalog entry. When you click on that button, you will be requested to supply your NetID/password. Once you hit submit from that screen, you will land on a Request Verification screen that will prompt you to select a pickup location.
Return your checked out items to RRC Library or Alkek, the ARC or Music Library if convenient. Exception: Alkek Library reserve items must be returned to the Alkek Reserves Desk. This service is available for students, faculty and staff with active NetIDs to save time traveling between Round Rock and San Marcos campuses for library items.
Faculty can complete the Proxy Form to designate proxy borrowers such as student employees to be authorized to check out items for a semester. Items will be checked out to the faculty's account, not the proxy's.
