Texas College has recently been awarded funding from the HBCU Alliance & the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) for a project titled “The Keepers of the Flame: Building a Safeguard for a Unique Archival Collection at the D. R. Glass Library.”

The project aims to build and digitize the Texas College archive collection and establish archival safeguards to ensure the College’s history remains preserved for future generations. A large component of the project is to collect (through donations) primary archival materials such as Texas College documents, correspondence, photographs, yearbooks, and paraphernalia from alumni, faculty, staff, students, and community members. Once collected, the pieces will be digitized (as applicable) to create a unique digital collection for scholarly and stakeholder use.

The Keepers of the Flame project will be overseen by Ms. Linda Simmons-Henry, Director of Library Services.
