Materials Request Form

Use Pioneer Search to identify books and DVDs available from Thigpen Library's physical collections.

Interlibrary Loan Services

Full text articles, books, and other materials that are not currently available from the library's existing online and physical collections may be ordered from other libraries through a free service called Interlibrary Loan.

When completing the "Book or DVD" request form to obtain physical materials from other libraries, you will be asked to select your campus location. Choose Cookeville, Gallatin, Livingston, or Highland Crest (i.e. Springfield) as appropriate.

TALC

The Tennessee Academic Library Cooperative (TALC) allows students and faculty/staff in the TBR, THEC, and UT systems to check out materials from any participating library (link opens in new window).

To be eligible for TALC you must be a currently enrolled student or be employed (full or part time) at a participating institution.

You must be able to log in to your campus portal to show that you are enrolled in course(s) for the current semester or that you are employed at the institution.

You will also be asked to show home campus ID. If you do not have a home campus ID, you may be asked to present a driver's license or other government-issued photo ID.

Borrowing privileges from a participating TALC library require that the borrower accept full responsibility for the items borrowed. As a TALC borrower, you agree to follow all rules and guidelines established by the lending library. Borrower responsibilities include returning materials in time and paying replacement cost of materials and fees, if charged by the lending library.
