Welcome to the University Libraries

Qatar Library

Get It For Me (Interlibrary Loan)

Students may request books and journal articles from the libraries on the main campus where there is a print collection of more that 4 million volumes using our Get It For Me service.

Get It For Me is a document delivery service, which supplies print books or electronic copies of journal articles or book chapters, free of charge to all students, staff and faculty. Print books generally arrive in Qatar within five to ten working days. Electronic versions normally are emailed within one to two days. Material not available from the main campus libraries can often be obtained from other North American universities and libraries and generally arrive within two to four weeks.

Expected Delivery Times

If we do not hold an item, or do not have electronic access to it, there is another option. If you are a Texas A&M faculty, staff or student and have a NetID the Texas A&M at Qatar Library can borrow from other libraries on your behalf.  Delivery time is normally around:

Electronic copy is much faster to get hold of so please indicate in the online form whether electronic copy (or a section of an item) is adequate for your needs. To request an inter-library loan please use the "Get it for me" online form >>

Purchase Request

If there is an item that you believe should be added to our collection, please fill out our Purchase Request Form and we will consider the request based on our budget and collection policies. You will be contacted with our purchase decision.

Please note that most items have to be purchased from the United States and will normally take 2-4 weeks for delivery, plus additional processing time. In the case of some items this time may be longer.
