TexShare Cards are part of a cooperative program between libraries at Texas colleges, universities, and public libraries. Among other services, it allows students, faculty, and staff of one TexShare library to use any other TexShare library as if they are students, faculty, or staff of that institution.
Those students that are currently registered, with valid student ID, and are in good standing (no overdue materials or outstanding fines, etc.) may apply for a card. TexShare borrowers must be 18 or older in order to be issued a card. Cards are valid for one semester and can be renewed for subsequent semesters when registered.
Each library has its own rules and lending policies for visiting TexShare Card users. Make sure you are aware of the policies at the library you intend to use. The first time you visit a participating library, be sure to bring a photo ID, your TAMIU ID, and your TexShare Card from Killam Library, to complete your registration.
At this time, card requests can be made by email. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your request is processed, your card will be mailed to your home address by postal mail. Please note that there may be a waiting period between the time your email is received to when your card is mailed.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about the program. You can contact Malynda Dalton, Access Services Librarian, at email@example.com or 956-326-2403. You can also contact the Circulation Desk at 956-326-2112.
