TexShare

sample TexShare Card imageTexShare is a statewide program through which St. Mary's current students, faculty, and staff may check out materials, in person, from participating TexShare libraries.

You can get a free TexShare card at the Blume Library Circulation Counter.  TexShare cards are only valid for one semester. You will need to get a new card each semester. You must present a current TexShare card, your St. Mary's Rattler ID card, and a photo ID (if your St. Mary's ID does not include a photo) at the library from which you wish to borrow materials.

For borrowers from other institutions:
Borrowers from other institutions can pay Texshare fines, assessed by the Blume Library, with a credit card using the Texshare online payment form.

Interlibrary Loan

If our library does not have a book or article you need, St. Mary's University students, faculty and staff may order it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Don't forget to ask a librarian for help if you have questions.
