The TexShare Program through the Texas State Library and Archives Commission provides member libraries and their patrons with full text databases, a borrower program, and interlibrary loan services. Instead of our college paying for individual subscriptions to the 71 databases provided through the TexShare progam, we pay a membership fee to gain access to these resources. The funding for the databases program comes from the member library fees (24%), Federal funds (29%) and State funds (47%).
You can check out books and articles from other Texas TexShare member libraries by obtaining a TexShare Card from the MCC Library. Fill out a TexShare Card application, available here for downloading and printing, or request an application at the library. Remember to bring your MCC ID when you come in to apply.

Complete the Texshare Application and bring it to the checkout desk along with your ID. We'll give you a TexShare Card. You may go to any participating library in Texas to check out materials using your TexShare Card. (Participating library rules vary by library.)
It's up to you. Once you have a TexShare card, you can go to any participating library.
It varies. The library you borrow from will let you know.
Return it to the library you borrowed from.
You'll need to ask the library you borrowed from.
It's good for one semester, but there's no limit as to how many times you may apply for a card.
Your university's library will give you a card.
Check one of the local libraries to see if they have what you're looking for.
