How Does TexShare Help Libraries Serve Customers Better?

TexShare enables participating libraries to offer a broader range of materials and services than any single library can provide. In addition to traditional resource sharing arrangements such as interlibrary loan, TexShare services include:

Online full-text databases, which are commercial databases licensed by TexShare offer authoritative, full-text articles from verifiable, subscription-only sources.

TExpress, a courier service that affords two-day delivery among libraries statewide.

TexTreasures grants for digitizing specialized collections.

The TexShare Card, which permits eligible patrons of Texas public and academic libraries in good standing to directly borrow materials from participating TexShare libraries across Texas.

The TexShare Education Program, which provides training for TexShare programs to enable staff at member libraries to better utilize TexShare services and better serve library patrons.

The Library of Texas at LibraryofTexas.org allows users to discover and retrieve desired information from multiple public, academic, and unique library catalogs, TexShare databases, locally subscribed collections, and other knowledge collections.
