TexShare Cards

Have you ever done a research project and discovered that there are not enough resources? Did you know that as an ACC student, you have access to just about any library in Texas? If you have not visited an ACC campus library to pick up your FREE TexShare card, do it now!

What is TexShare?

TexShare is a cooperative program designed to improve service to Texans. Members include public libraries that belong to the regional library systems, academic libraries, 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.

With a TexShare Card, a library patron may directly borrow books, music, movies and more from any other participating TexShare library, just as if he or she were card-holder there. If your local library participates in the TexShare Card program, you can request a TexShare Card at the circulation desk. See each library's lending policy for eligibility and restrictions.
A TexShare card is FREE to any ACC student who is currently enrolled. It lasts all semester and can be renewed every semester that you are enrolled in classes.
With a TexShare card, you can check out materials from any participating library in Texas. This includes, UT, Austin Public, and many more. Click here to find a library near you.
