The A&M-Central Texas Library is for everyone. We serve A&M-Central Texas' students, employees, and alumni, but also welcome community members, and offer borrowing privileges to the community through lending partnerships with libraries throughout the state.
In general, our lending guidelines are determined by your affiliation to the university. Faculty and staff may check out up to 50 items at a time. Graduate students and post-baccalaureate students may check out up to 30 items at one time. Undergraduate students may check out up to 20 items at one time. WarriorConnect and Texshare users may check out up to 10 items at one time. Most items are allowed 2 renewals, though there may be limits for media, reserves, and equipment. Lending periods for specific types of items are listed below.
If you are an A&M-Central Texas student, your student ID card is your library card. Simply present it at the circulation desk when checking out materials. A&M-Central Texas students also enjoy borrowing privileges from the community libraries that participate in the TexShare and WarriorConnect programs. Students can obtain their TexShare or WarriorConnect cards at the A&M-Central Texas Library’s circulation desk.
Don’t have your ID card yet? New students can obtain an ID card from the IT department, located on the first floor of Founder’s Hall, in room 114.
If you work at the university, your employee ID card acts as your library card. A&M-Central Texas employees also enjoy borrowing privileges from the community libraries that participate in the TexShare and WarriorConnect programs. Employees can obtain their TexShare or WarriorConnect cards at the A&M-Central Texas Library’s circulation desk.
A&M-Central Texas alumni can obtain an alumni card. Students who graduated from American Technological University, University of Central Texas, or Tarleton State University-Central Texas before 2009 qualify as legacy alumni at A&M-Central Texas, and they are encouraged to visit the Alumni Office to obtain their alumni card.
The TexShare program is a statewide program, made up of 689 participating libraries. If your local library participates in the TexShare program, you can request a TexShare card that grants you borrowing privileges at all other member libraries. Please contact your local library to inquire about their participation in the program or to obtain a TexShare card. City of Killeen libraries do not participate in the TexShare program, but they do participate in the program below.
The A&M-Central Texas Library partners with the City of Killeen libraries through the WarriorConnect program, which grants some Killeen residents borrowing privileges at the A&M-Central Texas Library. Please visit a City of Killeen library to obtain your WarriorConnect card.
