RECENTLY ADDED:

El Paso Public Library
These historical photographs document the Mexican Revolution, Pancho Villa’s raid on Columbus, New Mexico and the Punitive Expedition of 1916-1917. The images are taken from the Otis Aultman Photograph Collection and follow the journey of about 890,000 refugees to the United States. These emigrants brought new cultures and traditions with them that changed the country forever.

Coleman Public Library
People of all ages will be able to utilize the print, online and technology resources at this progressive community center. It offers books, magazines, e-books, databases, videos, audiobooks and more. The establishment was one of the first publicly-funded libraries in Texas and currently operates out of a renovated Safeway grocery store.

Rescuing Texas History, 2010
A flashback to this featured collection comes at a strategic time. The Portal to Texas History was started in 2002 to create a digital database of primary resources, and the grant program was one way to do so. The 2010 collection features local history materials from 12 affiliates, including TWU. Digitization for the current Mini-Grant series will begin in September.

Solve your family tree mystery with the websites on this annual list by Family Tree Magazine, the leading family history publication in genealogy research. This year, in celebration of the list’s 16th birthday, the sites are appropriately separated into 16 categories. Some require payment to use the services, but many do not.

FROM THE UNT DIGITAL LIBRARY:

Arteries of Progress
Sponsored by the Venezuelan Petroleum Industry, this documentary is part of a larger film series. It was created in 1949 and covers the establishment of much-needed transportation systems in the country: on land, in water and through the air. The film also explores the establishment of the Venezuelan petroleum industry, the ways it affected the country and how it both fueled and funded the new modes of transportation.
