Programmatically access the custom document library template

The following method finds the custom document library template in a sharepoint site.

 private Result GetSPDocLibTemplate(SPWeb spWeb, out SPListTemplate docLibTemplate)
        {
            Result result = new Result();
            result.IsSuccess = false;
            docLibTemplate = null;

            try
            {
                SPListTemplateCollection listTemplateCollection = spWeb.Site.GetCustomListTemplates(spWeb);

                foreach (SPListTemplate template in listTemplateCollection)
                {
                    if (template.Name.ToLower().Equals(“Expected Template Name”))
                    {
                        docLibTemplate = template;
                        break;
                    }
                }

                result.IsSuccess = true;
                return result;
            }
            catch(Exception error)
            {
                Log.ErrorFormat(“Error while searching for doc lib template: {0}”, error.Message);
                result.ErrorMessage = error.Message;
            }
            return result;
        }
