Limitations: Collin Libraries issue TexShare cards to currently enrolled students, faculty and staff only. Community patrons are not eligible for interlibrary loan or TexShare cards and should request those services from their home library. See the Collin Libraries Operational Guidelines and Procedures for further information, http://www.collin.edu/library/aboutus/operational.html.
Borrowing privileges for TexShare Card holders are valid until the end of the current semester, Fall, Spring or Summer.
Eligibility: TexShare borrowers from other libraries may apply for borrowing privileges at Collin Libraries by presenting a valid TexShare Card issued by their home library, their current library card from their home library, and a photo ID such as a current driver's license. The borrower must complete and sign a TexShare Borrower Agreement which outlines borrower responsibilities.

Non_Circ_Items: Reference materials, items on reserve, periodicals, microforms, computer software, videos, and sound recordings may not be checked out.

Fines: Fines and/or replacement and processing fees will be assessed for late or lost materials. Late fine: $.25/day for circulating books. Late fees are not charges on days the library is closed. Lost/damaged materials: Cost of book and $10.00 processing fee. In addition to Collin College fines, borrowers may also lose borrowing privileges and may be subject to penalties at their home institution.
Lost Items: An item is presumed lost if not returned after the final overdue notice – generally 6 weeks.
Billing: Fines assessed for late or lost materials may be paid in cash or by check at the Circulation Desk on each Collin campus or by mail. Payment by approved credit card is accepted during weekday hours the Bursar’s office is open after completing a form at the Circulation Desk.
