Houston Borrowing Program

Borrowing Materials from Houston Research Libraries

Faculty and advanced students can directly borrow books and other library materials from the collections of three research libraries in Houston: Rice University Fondren Library, Texas Medical Center Library, and University of Houston Libraries. Other libraries in the area can be accessed using the TexShare card.

UH Graduate Students and Faculty are eligible for remote access to the electronic resources of the Texas Medical Center Library. Please stop by the Service Desk (1st floor, M.D. Anderson Library) to complete an application.

Patrons wishing to access Rice University's Fondren Library should contact Lee Andrew Hilyer, (713-743-9714; lahilyer@uh.edu) directly for instructions. Unless the materials needed are only at the Fondren Library, UH users should request materials via the free Interlibrary Loan service.
