Renewals

Books and DVDs may be renewed once as long as they are not overdue and have not been placed on hold by another patron.

  • Students, faculty, and staff may renew items through "My Account" in the library catalog.
  • Public and community patrons (including VTC and VIVA) must call the library to renew.

The link below is instructions on how TCC students, faculty, and staff can renew their library items.  Also, there is a link to the Library Hours page that has links to the contact information for each campus library.

A collection of items (ex. Textbooks, photocopies etc.) selected by faculty that are available to TCC students for use for a limited amount of time.  Students should ask for assistance at the circulation desk. For more information about course reserves, click on the Course Reserve link below. 

Intercampus loan is the process whereby one TCC library lends materials to another TCC library.  A TCC library card is required to request an intercampus loan. Materials are usually received by the requesting library within 3 days and can be picked up at the Circulation Desk. The patron will receive an email when the item has been requested and when it is available for pickup.

Public and community patrons (including VTC and VIVA) must request materials from a staff member either in person or over the phone. Use the Library Hours link below to get contact information for each campus.

TCC students, faculty, and staff can request circulating materials to be sent between campuses using Primo (online catalog). The link below demonstrates how students, faculty, and staff can place a hold on library materials.

Interlibrary loan services are available to TCC students, faculty, and staff. For more information about interlibrary loans, click on the link below.

Public and community patrons (including VTC and VIVA) may request interlibrary loan services through their public or academic libraries.
