"I really enjoy going up to the quiet study floors in the library. I usually go several times a week to study. It’s awesome because there aren’t any distractions. Also, I love sitting by the huge windows and looking out at the gorgeous view of campus."

Paris Benford, Junior, Mass Communications

Featured Resource

Hispanic American Newspapers

Hispanic history, culture and daily life in the single largest compilation of Spanish-language newspapers printed in the U.S. during the 19th and 20th centuries, including many long scattered and forgotten titles published in the 19th century. It is based on the “Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project.”

"My staff in the Bindery department works primarily with print material. We work with outside companies for binding of periodicals, books, paperbacks, music, theses, dissertations, and preservation microfilm for the University Archives. I use up-to-date repair techniques to conserve older parts of the collection."
