One of the many services the library has to offer is found in our Limited and Local History Collections. Here are the many services we have to offer our patrons:
  • Tarleton State University archives
  • Tarleton State University theses and dissertations submitted for degrees
  • Tarleton State University Grassburr yearbooks
  • Displays of Tarleton State University artifacts
  • Drs. Marie and Nathan Cedars Holocaust collection
  • Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll, and William Morris collections donated by Dr. Joe R. Christopher
  • Michael Moser collection
  • Col. and Mrs. Milton P. Brooks bound volumes of The National Geographic
  • Dr. C. Richard King books and materials
  • Dr. Dick Smith books and materials
  • Local history and genealogy collections
  • Stephenville Empire-Tribune since 1882 on microfilm (some gaps)
  • Microfilm records for Erath, Brown, Callahan, Shackleford and Stephens counties

As I was preparing for something to write for our LOL blog I started thinking about some of the services we provided and I went to The J-TAC (Tarleton State University Student Newspaper) online. I was curious to see if I searched for my name and the years that I was a student at Tarleton if anything would come up. I was surprised (and a little excited) to see my maiden name come up in several issues.

So, if you or someone you know was a student, faculty or staff member at Tarleton go and check out the
The J-TAC (Tarleton State University Student Newspaper). You just might be surprised to find some interesting information!
