How Do I?

Request from Other Campuses

Find a book you want, but it's not at your home campus? No worries! Just use the "Request this item" button on a book's record (see picture below), and that book can be sent to whichever TCC campus is most convenient to you. This is a FREE service, but please be sure to allow a few days for a book to arrive. When it arrives, you will receive an email indicating it is ready to pick up.

Consortium Card

The TCC libraries are in a consortium with several other libraries in the Hampton Roads area (full list of available institutions available on the right). At any TCC library, you can ask for a Consortium Library card, which will allow you to check out books from any of these libraries. If there is a book you need right away that is not in our collection, a consortium card is a great way to get it quickly.


  • Must be currently enrolled as a student or faculty member at TCC
  • Must be in good standing with the TCC library (no overdue books)


  • Must present a currently validated Consortium Borrower's Card as well as a current college I.D., a driver's license, or photo I.D.


  • Must pay fines for overdue books and replacement costs for lost books.
  • Circulation privileges will be blocked for overdue books and unpaid fines both at the borrowing institution and the home institution.

It is a privilege to borrow materials from member libraries. Failure to comply with the rules and regulations of the lending libraries, including prompt return of materials and/or payment of charges, will result in sanctions by both the home and lending institutions. In addition, consortium borrowing privileges at all member libraries will be suspended.
