Resources of Texas Libraries.
Holley, Edward G.; Hendricks, Donald D.
This study of library resources was undertaken as a part of a statewide plan for higher education in Texas. The document includes descriptions of library facilities and resources at the University of Texas at Austin, other universities, and public and private junior and senior colleges. The public library network, health science libraries, law libraries, special libraries, and emerging cooperative patterns are also described. The report's recommendations include improved bibliographic access to the University of Texas at Austin Library collections, a strengthening of the Texas State Library, efforts to increase use of existing resources, and coordination of cooperative programs. A 60-page alphabetical subject list of areas of strength in Texas libraries has been compiled and included. Lists of 100 basic pariodicals and 257 basic reference books used to check holdings in the various libraries appear in the appendixes along with 2 maps showing locations of public and private colleges and universities in Texas.
