Services for Distance Students: Getting a Library Card

The Library offers a number of services to distance students

Library Card for Distance Students

TexShare is a cooperative program designed to improve service to Texans. Members include academic libraries, public libraries that belong to regional systems, and libraries of clinical medicine. TexShare enables libraries to offer a broader range of materials and services than any single library can provide for its constituents. Through the TexShare program, libraries provide services to all Texans, even those living outside their service areas.
If you would like to use a public library outside of your home area or another college or university library, you may do so by first obtaining a TexShare card from us.
  • Texshare card allow our students and faculty to use most other college libraries in the state, with restrictions. A list of participating libraries and their rules are available from the TexShare website.
  • You must be a currently enrolled student with no blocks on your record to obtain a TexShare card. The card will expire at the end of each semester and you must reapply to continue using the service.

TexShare card may be obtained from Lori Bryan on the first floor of the library or by completing the online request form and having the card mailed to you.
