We Offer Much More Than You Might Think....

Museum Library

The Museum maintains a research library featuring printed materials on a variety of topics, including Border Relations; Texana & Western subjects; Anthropology & Archaeology; Natural History & Wildlife; Antiques and more. All are indexed on the Jernigan Library's OASIS online catalog and are available to students and the general public. Museum Library materials are non-circulating and can only be used in the Conner Museum.

The Museum maintains an area for researchers to use Library materials, with electrical access for laptop computers and access to the University's wi-fi connection.

Selection of Museum Library Books

Access to Artifacts in Storage

The Conner Museum's collections include many more artifacts than those on exhibit; due to limited space, only 10-15% of the Museum's collection can be displayed. Artifacts include textiles; carriages; farm equipment; paintings and fine art; furniture and decorative arts; antique firearms; anthropologic materials, and much more--"everything from buggies to baby bottles!"The collections are available for study by students and serious researchers within Museum areas by appointment. Interested faculty or researchers should contact the Museum Curator at least two weeks before the anticipated research date to schedule their visit.
