Access to our collections

Special Collection materials are fragile, valuable, and in many cases, irreplaceable. Although the library strives to make access as easy as possible, the Library has taken certain measures to protect these items. Therefore, visitors must anticipate a time delay between requests and access of at least 48 hours.

Before You Visit

Contact W. M. Logan Library to set up an appointment and verify that the items you need are available and accessible.  

On your arrival, you will be asked to show a valid ID card and complete our User Registration Form, which is required of all users in Special Collections. Please ask a staff member about our policies if you plan to take notes or make photographic or digital reproductions of items during your visit. 

Items from Special Collections cannot be checked out to individuals not employed by the University for any reason. Employee use and temporary custody of materials will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Use of all items is supervised at all times. Room 160 may be reserved for this purpose.

Summer Access

Between May 12 and August 12 of each year, only limited access is available.  Archival research assistance and access to unprocessed collections will be unavailable during this time. Please contact Special Collections at 830-792-7337 for additional information.

From the Collections

Parades were a regular occurrence at Schreiner Institute. On Sundays, the students would perform a military parade on the school grounds in their uniforms, but here we see the company officers and sponsors marching ahead of the Schreiner Band as part of a Kerrville holiday parade.
