Table of Contents service for Faculty
As part of the library’s commitment to providing academic support to TCC faculty and clinicians, we offer a Table of Contents (TOC) Routing Service designed for those who wish to keep abreast of the literature in their field but lack the time to peruse all of our journals on a regular basis.  Tell Sherry Mahana the journals you are most interested in, and she will send you a paper copy of each new TOC as it is published.  Mark the titles of the articles you want to read, then send it back to her to receive a paper copy or a PDF, whichever you prefer. 

ILL - Faculty

Interlibrary loan (ILL)
Do you need the full text of a journal article that the library does not subscribe to, or a book or video that we don’t have in our collection?  We are happy to request it from another library for you.  In most cases, this takes a few days for an article and about two weeks for a book, and is free.  If there would be a charge, or if it will take longer, we will let you know before proceeding.

Please provide as much of the following information as possible when making an ILL request:
