The links below are NOT a comprehensive list  of resources.  These links are provided as a sample to start your research.  For assistance with archival resources, please contact the University Archives.

Issues of the Normal Star (1911-1923) and the College Star (1923-1934) are digitized and available on the Portal to Texas History.  We are currently seeking grants and/or donations that will allow us to digitize more issues. 


Digital back issues of the University Star from 2004 to the present are also available online.

Archival Resources

The Special Collections and Archives holds official university records, donated materials from friends and alumni, and subject files related to various buildings, property, programs, and events. Researchers interested in in-depth study may find these materials to be a rich source of information. 

Use the Archives and Records Form to schedule an appointment and include specific information on what you are requesting and would like to view from the archives. Researchers are also welcome to schedule an initial reference consultation with an archivist to discuss research needs. Please keep in mind that while some topics are well-documented, there are still many gaps in our historical records.
