What is the difference between a library card and a TexLaw ID?
To get a library card, you must visit the library in person and present valid Texas identification like a driver's license. Your card provides you with full library privileges, including borrowing privileges and use of our library-use-only databases like Westlaw — plus your card number also serves as your TexLaw ID. To get a TexLaw ID, you only need an internet connection and to reside in Texas — this provides you access from home to some of our digital resources like e-books and legal databases.
Remember, if you have questions about remote databases, e-books in our digital collection, or any of our library resources, don't hesitate to Ask a Librarian!
