Library Distance Education Services

Mission: The Texas A&M University-Central Texas Library Distance Education Services program aims to provide quality assistance to TAMUCT Students, Faculty, Staff and Community users seeking information sources remotely by providing digital reference services, online information literacy tutorials, and digital materials.

Full DES Mission

Texas A&M University-Central Texas University Library are dedicated to helping you find the resources you need for your courses. Over half of our library collection is located online, making many of our resources available instantly from home. We have approximately 81,726 electronic journals and over 55,000 eBooks, in addition to databases that contain diverse resources like maps, government documents, and primary historical sources.

As a Texas A&M University-Central Texas distance learner, you can access:

  • Digital Journals: Search for electronic journals using Metalib, Google Scholar or specific databases. You can also search for specific journals using Online Journals (SFX). Whenever you see "Check SFX for Availability", click to see if you have access to the resource.
  • EBooks: Go to the library homepage, click on Online eBooks. You can search the entire text of the library's eBooks, or you can search by keyword, title, or subject. The entire text of EBSCO eBooks can be read for free online by TAMUCT students, faculty, and staff who login.
  • Print Materials: Qualified students and faculty can request distance delivery through email or the US postal service. Students and Faculty who live more than 50 miles from Founder's Hall qualify for this service.
  • Online Services: As a TAMUCT Distance Learner, you can take advantage of the same services as our on-campus users. Through our web forms, you can request a Texshare card that will let you take out materials from almost anywhere in the state of Texas, get access to our RosettaStone language learning resources, or ask the library to purchase materials. We are also more than happy to work with you to accommodate any other research needs you may have that are not covered here.
  • Virtual Research Help: You can get help with research in lots of different ways, including online research help chats, through email, and by using our subject guides, database summaries and library tutorials. You can even schedule a live help session with one of our reference librarians on Skype! Help is available, and our staff will go out of their way to insure you understand our research tools well enough to succeed.
