Off-campus use of online resources
The library’s goal is to ensure that all students – whether on campus or off campus – have access to library resources that will assist them in completing their class assignments and other research information needs.
Currently enrolled FPC students have full access to all electronic resources.
Books – Under the Library section, click on Catalog.
Periodical, Reference, e-book, and other research sites
The library offers TexShare and the Texas State Library for online research and other academic information needs. TexShare is the library’s primary reference and research site for periodicals. Students are encouraged to use the TexShare databases to search for full-text articles. A full-text resource can provide instant print access to a complete article. Click on TexShare or Texas State Library under the Library/Learning Resource Center link to access these resources. Off-campus students will need a login and password to access this site. To obtain the access information for TexShare or to gain other online research assistance, contact Jason Price, the library director, at ,firstname.lastname@example.org 806-457-4200 Ext. 787. The login information is also on the front page of the student portal system at FPC, CAMS. The information inside the student portal is available AT ALL TIMES.

An ILL request can be submitted online or with a library staff member. Click on the ILL request application link under Library/Learning Resource Center.
