University Libraries Records, 1935-2008 | University of Houston Libraries
These original materials are available in Special Collections.
The collection is arranged alphabetically and based primarily on how it was originally received in 1972 and 1973. For preservation and access reasons the collection has been re-boxed and re-foldered. New folder titles conform, as closely as possible, to original folder titles, except when the original was obviously incomplete, incorrect, or confusing. Original folder and item order has been maintained whenever possible. Exceptions were made when folders were misfiled or when no order was apparent.
The University Libraries Records are the records generated during the tenure of several directors at the University of Houston Libraries. The collection has been arranged into five series: The materials in the collection date from 1930s – 2004, with the bulk of the materials dating from the 1960s through the 1990s. Included in the collection are university-related correspondence, minutes, agendas, reports, financial reports, bids, and contracts. All folder titles use the headings provided by their originator.
