Welcome to the main resource page for graduate studies in Criminal Justice at TCU!

On this page, you will find general information about the TCU library including information about TexShare, so you can borrow books from other libraries; how to set-up an account in Refworks, and how to borrow materials from other libraries using Interlibrary Loan.


If you live in Texas, you can use the TexShare card from TCU to check out books from other university or public libraries in Texas. To request a TexShare card to borrow in person at other participating institutions:

  • Online: fill out this online form and we'll mail the card to the address you provide.
  • In person: ask for a TexShare application form at the circulation desk. Fill it out and turn it in to be immediately issued a TexShare card that you may take along with your TCU ID card to request borrowing privileges.

Each participating library sets their own guidelines for the sharing of materials, so please check before you go for specific items.  Unresolved fines or fees at the lending institution will be applied to your TCU accounts.
