Do TexShare visitors still have Checkout privileges?
Answer:
Yes, you will need to follow the ACC Library policy for TexShare users that we have had in place since 1997. (https://www.tsl.state.tx.us/texshare/libsearch/searchResults.php?orgId=213&listLendingPolicies=yes) ACC's TexShare card policy also requires your presentation of a valid photo ID to check-out materials.

Can guests/visitors obtain a TexShare card here?
Answer:
Unfortunately, no. State guidelines require that we can issue TexShare cards only to current ACC students, faculty and staff; however, you may obtain the card from your local public library or from the college library where you currently attend school.

Do all guests/visitors entering the ACC Library need a TexShare card?
Answer:
No. You do not need a TexShare card to enter the Library, but TexShare cardholders must still sign in at the Reference Desk with a valid photo ID. And, if you are a TexShare Borrower you WILL need your TexShare Card in order to check-out materials.
