Consists of Heritage Quest, Sanborns Maps, and the Chadwyck-Healey Literature Collections of poetry.

  • Digital Sanborn Maps--TEXAS
    Search maps that chart the growth and development of selected Texas towns and cities.

  • Heritage Quest
    This online database is an essential collection of unique material for both genealogical and historical researchers, with coverage dating back to the late 1700s. HeritageQuest Online includes all of the images, and extensive indexing, from the 1790 - 1940 U.S. federal censuses. It offers more than 20,000 book titles, including nearly 8,000 family histories and over 12,000 local histories. Additionally, there are more than 250 primary-source documents such as tax lists, city directories, probate records, and more.

  • Chadwyck-Healey Literature Collections
    Twentieth-century American poetry and Twentieth-century English poetry.
    The Chadwyck-Healey Literature Collections provide access to key texts for study and research, many of them rare and inaccessible in print form. Unlike other electronic texts that are available on the Internet, these texts are accurate reproductions of authoritative printed sources; full publication and pagination details of the original are given, allowing you to cite correctly from these texts as you would from a printed original.
