You need to be affiliated with UTMB in order to check out Library materials. We do have reciprocal borrowing arrangements with the libraries in the Texas Health Science Libraries Consortium (THSLC) and with TexShare libraries (see description below). Otherwise, you may either come to the Library and utilize materials in person, or you may go to a library where you have privileges and request the item you need on interlibrary loan.

Texas Health Science Libraries Consortium (THSLC)
A collaboration of health science libraries in the Houston-Galveston area and includes those libraries, which share the THSLC Library Online Catalog.

Requires no special card--just a UTMB ID and driver's license.

A consortium of Texas libraries joining together to share materials, purchase online resources, and combine staff expertise. TexShare services are available to patrons of participating member libraries all across Texas.

Lending libraries typically require a UTMB ID, driver's license, and a TexShare Card.

  • Eligible patrons of Texas public and academic libraries in good standing are allowed to directly borrow materials from participating TexShare libraries across Texas.
