However, most libraries of any type (public or academic) provide interlibrary loan services for their constituents. If you are no longer affiliated with an academic institution, contact the local public library and investigate their interlibrary loan services.
Additionally, Texas residents can obtain a TexShare card from their public library which will allow them to check out materials from libraries (academic and public) throughout the state of Texas. For those who live outside of Texas, many states have similar programs; so, also check with local public libraries to find out about statewide resource sharing services that may be available.
If you need assistance in finding out if these programs exist in your state, you can always use the Baylor Libraries' Ask a Librarian service for assistance.
