A Tour of the Texas Collection, Part 1

June 19, 2015
Have you ever wondered how a special collections library works? Ever been curious about just what it is exactly The Texas Collection does and why? Follow along as we give you a behind-the-scenes tour of The Texas Collection Library! The Texas Collection is a special collection library in the Baylor University Library System. A special collection library has a focused holding of materials on a particular subject—in this case, Texas. By committing to a single focus, a special collection library provides a deeper understanding of the subject. The Texas Collection’s holdings document the development of the Texas region from the earliest North American explorations to the present day. This video was directed, filmed, and edited by Megan Danner.
