What is the TexShare Card?

With a TexShare Card you can directly borrow books, music, movies and more from any other participating TexShare library, just as if you were card-holder there.

Find a TexShare Library Near You

Most public and academic libraries participate in TexShare. Search for one near you. Each participating library has slightly different lending policies, you can get links to each libraries policy on the search result list.


The only requirement is that you must be a current COM student, faculty or staff member.

Where Do I Get the TexShare Card?

Get a TexShare card at the COM Library Circulation desk.

Good to Know

Generally using your TexShare card at other local libraries is much quicker than requesting that COM Library get a book or aricle for you--they have to come through the mail.
