TexShare Cards

Distance education students may use the TexShare Library card to borrow materials from libraries participating in TexShare (a resource sharing program among public colleges, private colleges, universities and public libraries in Texas, designed to improve library services to Texans.) List of participating libraries can be found at https://www.tsl.texas.gov/texshare/libsearch/index.php. TexShare cards may be requested by emailing Brandi Faulkner.  In the subject line of your email, put “student TexShare Card request.” and include mailing information and  student ID information.  

TexShare cards expire after one year, so students must request a new one each year.

 

Electronic databases, scholarly articles, and more

Learn about and access electronic resources by selecting the "Database" tab or the appropriate Research Guide for the course that you are taking.

 

InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

Students who need books or articles that the library does not own may request those items through InterLibrary Loan.  We will find another library who does have the item and request to borrow it for you.  The process takes from 5-10 days since the items ship through the mail.  The service is free unless the lending library charges; in some instances, a fee for access or shipping may be required. If there is a charge, you have the option to delete the request before they send it.

Place InterLibrary Loan requests at the circulation desk of the library, call us at 254-647-1414or email us at library@rangercollege.edu.
