Special Collections at Southwestern University is a special place, filled with stories about our forebears in Texas and at Southwestern. This blog is aimed at telling those stories from the past, and our stories as we work with the materials in our collections.

This blog was inspired by two of my favorite special collections blogs: In Circulation and Past is Present. The writing will be a mix of voices – those of myself, my colleagues from in and out of the library, and our outstanding student workers, as well as undergraduates in the midst of their course work.

We hope you enjoy the blog, and that our work here will inspire you to come and see some of our fabulous resources in Special Collections at Southwestern University.
