The University of Texas Libraries collects and preserves the finest achievements of human knowledge in support of not only research and instruction needs, but also the exploration of ideas and intellectual innovation. We are proud to provide access to digitized and born-digital items from our collections for researchers, scholars, educators, and the general public.

The items presented here, including newspapers, images, books, maps, and more, represent only a small portion of the Libraries’ vast holdings. We are adding more all the time.

Statement on Harmful Language and Content

The University of Texas Libraries (UTL) preserves and provides access to a wide range of cultural heritage and research collections. UTL strives to provide access to collection materials in a manner that is respectful to the individuals and communities who create, use, steward, and are represented in our holdings. Some content in UTL holdings may be disturbing or offensive, and may not reflect the current organizational values of UTL. We are committed to correcting past errors, overcoming current limitations, and are actively working to provide the necessary support for the collections in our care and those who engage with them.

Open Source Technology

We built our discovery portal with open source solutions, including a Blacklight interface framework and a Solr enterprise index. We serve images using the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) and expose our IIIF manifests so that items are portable to any IIIF viewer.
