What Resources Can I Use?

Welcome to the Nelson Memorial Library's Public and Alumni Resources page! All are welcome to come into the library and utilize the library's print resources. Additionally, resources on this page are freely available for public and alumni use, with no need for active SAGU/Lionmail credentials. 

Persons not currently enrolled at a SAGU campus have three routes for checking items out of the Nelson Memorial Library: TexShare, ACL, or Community cards. TexShare cards can be obtained from almost any Texas library (like your local public library) free of charge. ACL Reciprocal Borrowing cards may be obtained from other libraries participating in the program. Community member cards may be purchased from the Nelson Memorial Library for $50 per one year or $100 per three years. Any of these cards will allow you to check out in person up to three items at a time for a six-week period.
