Card application

TexShare is a cooperative program designed to improve library service to all Texans. Both academic and public libraries are members. A TexShare card enables holders to borrow materials from and share resources at other member libraries.

Through membership in TexShare, Vance Memorial Library is able to offer the DBU community numerous benefits, including:

  • Expanded access to online databases
  • Borrowing privileges at member Texas libraries
  • Rapid Interlibrary Loan service via TEXPress courier services


You may apply for a TexShare card online or in person at the circulation desk.

  • Only current DBU students, faculty, and staff are eligible.
  • TexShare cards must be renewed once a year. Cards expire on May 31 every year.
  • Cards for online applicants will be mailed.
  • Cards must be signed on the back to be valid.


A list of TexShare library members can be found at the TexShare web site. Please note: each library sets its own policies for TexShare members; those policies are also listed on the web site. You may wish to contact the library to confirm its policies before your visit.


By receiving and signing your TexShare card, you agree to the following:

  • To present required ID at the lending library
  • To observe the regulations of the lending library
  • To return items to the lending library in person or by first-class, insured mail
  • To return items immediately if recalled by the lending library
  • To pay charges for late returns, damages, or loss*
  • To surrender the card upon Library request

*Failure to pay charges within one month of notification will result in suspension of Library privileges at DBU as well as TexShare privileges statewide.

Use your TexShare privileges responsibly!

We are here to help you!
