Kinesiology includes three major areas: teacher education, wellness management, and athletic training. This guide is intended to help those doing research in one of those areas.


Borrowing Books and Articles from Other Libraries

Interlibrary Loan --An HBU student, faculty or staff member can request an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) for a book or article that Moody Library does not own by filling out an Interlibrary Loan Request Form and giving it to a librarian or using one of the online forms below. The Interlibrary Loan Librarian will try to obtain the material from the nearest free or inexpensive source after searching a nationwide network.  Items will be shipped to Moody library.  Every effort is made to obtain the materials quickly and at the least possible expense, but we cannot guarantee a speedy arrival.  Moody Library only borrows books and articles; no CDS, cassette tapes, DVDs, or videocassettes will be requested.  The patron will be notified by email when the item arrives.  Please complete your use of the borrowed materials quickly and return them to the Interlibrary Loan department at HBU.  Questions about Interlibrary Loan should be directed to the Interlibrary Loan Librarian at 281-649-3181 or

Book Interlibrary Loan Request Form

TexShare Cards -- The TexShare card program is an agreement among several libraries which allows users of TexShare libraries to directly borrow from other TexShare libraries.  Using a TexShare card HBU faculty, staff and currently enrolled students can borrow books in person from participating libraries.  The number of books that can be borrowed is limited by the policies of the TexShare libraries.  A TexShare card can be obtained at the Reference Desk or the Circulation Desk along with a list of the local libraries that participate in the TexShare program.  Rice University does not participate in the TexShare card program.

Borrowing From Rice University -- To borrow books from Rice University an HBU affiliate must obtain an official ALA (American Library Association) Interlibrary loan form from the Moody Reference Desk, fill it out completely and have it signed by an HBU librarian.  Users must know which book is to be borrowed from Rice.  An incomplete form will not be accepted.  Librarians can assist patrons to find book citations in the Rice University catalog.  The agreement between Rice and HBU allows our faculty, staff and students to borrow up to four books at a time.  Each book borrowed needs its own form. HBU constitutents who use this service are responsible for returning all items to Rice.
