TexShare Card Holder Borrowing Policy
This policy applies to guests who use a TexShare card to borrow books from UTSA Libraries. If you are a UTSA student, staff member, or faculty member, please visit the TexShare Program page for more information about borrowing materials from other Texas libraries.
The UTSA Libraries honors TexShare Cards issued by participating institutions, allowing public library members, and Texas college/university students, staff, and faculty to borrow materials when visiting in person. You must be at least 16 years of age to use a TexShare Card at the UTSA Libraries.
TexShare Students and Public card holders from other Texas libraries who borrow UTSA materials may check out up to 4 items at one time from the general collection for a period of 2 weeks. TexShare Faculty card holders may check out up to 20 items from the general collection at one time for the length of the semester.
Courier service between campuses is not available.
Renewing UTSA Books
- Public library members/students- one renewal
- Faculty- 2 renewals (can be done by calling the John Peace Library (210-458-4574) or the Downtown Campus Library (210-458-2440), or in person at the Front Desk of either library)
Circulating items are fined at $0.50 per day with a maximum fine of $15.
All items which are borrowed from the UTSA Libraries are the responsibility of the borrower. Each patron should ensure that items are renewed or returned to the library by the due date specified. Due dates are printed and inserted in each borrowed item at the time of checkout. Payment for overdue fines is accepted by check or UTSA Guest Card. We do not accept cash. Further library service is not available until overdue material(s) are returned and/or fines have been paid.
Lost or Damaged Materials
Users are responsible for charges for items lost or damaged during their borrowing period. In addition to replacement costs, users will be responsible for a processing fee of $10. For damaged items, charges will be determined by the cost of repairs or replacement.
