When you have a student ID card created, you are assigned a 14-digit Lone Star library barcode which is printed on the back of your ID. This barcode will be active so long as you're a current student.
You can request a barcode number online. You will receive your barcode in an email sent to your Lone Star email address only.
If you have a public library card with Harris or Montgomery counties, that barcode will let you into the public library databases but not Lone Star's. Unfortunately, these barcodes cannot be combined with your Lone Star barcode.
Online Library Materials
You can find our online resources through the Research Databases page. That page is broken into subject areas to help you select the best collections to search within (or if you know you want a video or e-book, you can go to those particular pages).
Each of those pages is further broken down by information type: e.g. background info, scholarly articles, primary sources, and so on.
When you click an individual link into a database, you'll be prompted to sign in with your library barcode in order to get access.
