Preparations are under way to move the Mary Couts Burnett Library Special Collections vault to its new location later this month. Everything in the current vault will be transferred to the new vault, equipped with compact shelving.
The move is expected to take two weeks, Sept. 29 – Oct. 10. During that time, the Special Collections Reading Room will be closed. There will be no services available from the department since all Special Collections staff will be actively involved in the move. Rare book volumes and archival material will be in transition from one location to the other.
Please be aware of this two week cessation of service. Faculty and students must access needed material before the two week closure or wait until service is restored.
The website listing for Special Collections hours will be altered for those two weeks to further communicate this information.
We invite you to explore, evaluate and learn as you use the vast resources available to you!
The Library staff, research librarians and special collections help students launch their research journeys and promote their success at TCU and beyond. Our research librarians will provide you with in-depth, specialized research support and much more. Stop by and meet your librarian today!
The Mission of the TCU Library is to provide intellectual resources, innovative technology tools and an inspiring physical and virtual environment to serve TCU’s diverse community of learners, supported by approachable and resourceful staff.
Welcome to the TCU Experience
Learning to change the world
We added something special to the new entrance. The expression ipsa scientia potestas est - translation: “knowledge itself is power.”
This phrase often implies that with knowledge or education, one’s potential or abilities in life will certainly increase.
Live it every time you walk into the Library!
