TCU Library transitions to new system: What you need to know

On Wednesday, June 26, 2024, the TCU Library is transitioning to a new integrated library system – a one-stop, more efficient system, allowing you to access all library materials in one place. The most notable enhancement will be to FrogScholar which will now feature an all-inclusive search function, in lieu of the separate discovery and library catalog functions we’ve utilized previously. This new system is more streamlined and easier to navigate.

How does this work?

FrogScholar provides simple, one-stop searching for books and e-books, videos, articles, digital media and more. FrogScholar also helps you manage your research. Simply sign-in to:

Renew books and videos
Create favorites lists
Export citations to RefWorks and Endnote Web
View full search results (some databases only show results when you're signed in)

If you have any questions or issues with the new system, contact the reference desk by phone at 817-257-7117 or chat with a librarian

We’re excited about this change as it will benefit all library users.

TCU authors can make their journal articles freely available to the world

The TCU Library is excited to announce it has signed several innovative Transformative Agreements with scholarly publishers: Wiley, Institute of Physics and Company of Biologists.

These agreements expand the reach and influence of our research and creative scholarship, and increases equity by reducing barriers for readers worldwide to access TCU's scholarship. They allow our TCU authors to make their journal articles freely available to the world.

The Transformative Agreements are year-to-year and could change for 2024.

TCU Library Westside Closure – Summer 2024

Beginning Monday, May 13, 2024, all three floors of the library’s westside, including access to the collections, will be closed the entire summer 2024. The library’s westside will undergo a significant HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system maintenance project to enhance the overall infrastructure of the library.

During this closure, all physical materials, including the Federal Government Documents Collection, MUST BE requested online for retrieval and pick up.

Visit the FAQ at https://libanswers.tcu.edu/faq/340487 for directions on requesting materials from the closed section.

Hold requests are available for pick up Monday through Friday.

The library’s eastside will remain open for our regular hours of operation throughout the project and services and resources are still available.
