The purpose of this blog is to reach out to the students, faculty, and researchers in the Sam Houston State University community and those around the world who are interested in historical materials. Often rare materials can be remain unknown except to a few insiders. We here at Sam Houston State University are interested in getting the word out about the wonderful collections that are stored in Thomason Special Collections and SHSU University Archives as well as promoting collections we have digitized online. This blog will feature highlighted materials within our collection, finding aids which provide detailed description of collections, preservation and digitization tips from staff, and much more.
We have got some great, weird, and interesting stuff for people to discover!
