DeGolyer Library entrance, 2015DeGolyer Library will be closed to the general public starting June 1, 2015, as part of the renovation in Fondren Library. Over the next 6-12 months, the library will be moving all of its collections, work spaces, offices, and reading room. Staff will attempt to keep up with reference queries and photo orders as best they can during the renovation, but there will be times when some materials will be completely inaccessible or stored off site. Our various digital collections, of course, will remain accessible:

We appreciate everyone’s patience and look forward to serving researchers in renovated facilities in 2016!

    Dear Archivist,
    I would like to look at some 25 pages of a reference book that is identified as part of the the DeGolyer Library collection, specifically Lotz, 1963. Will your library reopen sometime this summer?
    Thank you,
    Helen Hough

    Hello. I am working on genealogy and I am trying to find ANY information regarding my great great grandfather, Matthew Roberts who worked for Baldwin Locomotive as a machinist. sometime after 1875 (I don’t have his date of death). Do you think you could possibly take a look & see what you can find??!! Please.

    When do you believe the DeGolyer will reopen? I’m a graduate student in Art History at TCU and I need to review two books found in the DeGolyer as part of my thesis. Thanks!
