Texas A&M University Libraries participate in TexShare, a cooperative program designed to improve library service to Texans. A TexShare Card provides patrons with borrowing privileges from more than 500 participating libraries across the state, offering a broader range of materials and services than any single library can provide. TexShare focuses on the efficient sharing of library holdings, with an emphasis on electronic information resources and traditional collections of books and journals.
