The Library of Texas at
is a new service offered by the Texas State Library and Archives
Commission that allows users to easily discover and retrieve desired
information from multiple library catalogs, databases, and other
knowledge collections. Texans no longer need to use a separate
interface for each individual library or database. At present, the
Library of Texas searches through the catalogs of 63 public libraries,
26 academic libraries, and 40 TexShare commercial databases.
The Library of Texas groups these information resources together by
subject and region. Users have the option to create and save their own
groups of favorite resources for searching. Many search results from
the TexShare databases will include the full text from the original
article, satisfying the information needs of the user right away. For
materials that are not immediately available online, search results
will include links to online bookstores and an ILL request form so that
the user can obtain the desired information.
Users do not need an ID to search library catalogs, but will need to
use your TexShare login ID and password to get access to TexShare
