SHSU - The Woodlands Center Library Services

This is intended as an introductory guide to help students of SHSU -- The Woodlands Center best utilize Newton Gresham Library's resources and services.

Introduction

Just because you're attending classes at a campus without a traditional library doesn't mean you can't utilize print resources for your research and assignements. Take advantage of two key resources, detailed below, to help you take advantage of all the library resources possible.

Interlibrary Loan

ILLiad -- Click here to make an Interlibrary Loan request.

 

Have you found the perfect resource for your paper, but Newton Gresham Library doesn't own a copy and you can't access it online? No problem! You can request research materials not available at the library and we can usually acquire them from an international network of libraries. And if you qualify for Distance Learning Services (see note below), you can even have the materials delivered directly to SHSU - The Woodlands Center for on-site pickup.

For more information, pleaes visit the Interlibrary Loan page.

On-Site Pickup

Great news! You may be able to request print materials from Newton Gresham Library and have them delivered directly to SHSU - The Woodlands Center for on-site pickup. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to support your research and other coursework.

On-Site Delivery Instructions

To qualify for on-site delivery to TWC you must take NO classes in Huntsville and you must live outside of Walker County. If you meet those requisites, you can do the following to request print materials from Huntsville to be delivered at TWC.

  1. Create an ILLiad account if you have not done so before. This is separate from your SHSU account.
  2. Fill out THIS FORM to register for our distance services. (This must be done each semester)
  3. Go back to ILLiad, log into your account, and fill out the new book request form.

At this point our staff will see your request, verify your distances services registration, and deliver the materials using our courier service.

Please note, the courier service acts much like the USPS so can take 2-3 business days. In addition, they only deliver Tuesdays and Thursdays so please keep this in mind if you are on a tight deadline. If so, let me know and I can see if there is anything we can do to expedite the process.
