Special Collections Receives Grant
By Roger Rainwater


In August, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission awarded Special Collections a TexTreasures grant for the 2001 fiscal year. The award was one of six made to libraries state-wide to improve access to materials of significance to Texas. The department is using the grant to employ project archivist Ms Lori Lawrence to work with the Amon G. Carter Papers. Ms Lawrence began work in October. The project is designed to enhance and expand access to the Carter Papers through revision of the paper finding aid for the collection, re-housing portions of the collection, and production of a web-based finding aid. The project should provide more efficient and effective retrieval of information for researchers whether they are in the library or anywhere in the world.

The Amon G. Carter Papers were a 1999 gift of the Carter Foundation.
