Library Services for Students: Forms

The Library offers many different kinds of services to our students. Here you will find information about circulation (checkout), course reserves, interlibrary loan, TexShare cards, and more.

Directions for using forms

Mouse over the Forms tab above to select your form from the drop-down list. 

Which form should you use?

ILL = Interlibrary Loan

  • Use these forms when DBU does not own the item you need.  Use ILL-Books to borrow books from participating libraries; use ILL-Articles to receive copies of articles not available from DBU's databases.

DistEd = Distance Education

  • Use these forms if you are an off-campus or online student living more than 10 miles from the main campus.  Use DistEd-Books to check out books that will be mailed to you; use DistEd-Articles to receive scanned copies of articles from our print journals.

TexShare = TexShare card program

  • Get a TexShare card that will allow you to check out books and other materials from libraries all around the state of Texas, including academic and public libraries. 

Renew = Check-out renewal

  • Use this form to extend the check-out period for DBU Library books.  Be sure to use this form BEFORE your books are due. (Hint: you can only renew your books once.)

Research Request = Ask a librarian

  • Use this form to ask a quick question or get help with your research. A librarian will call or email you with answers and advice, usually within 24 hours.
