Introduction:
The purpose of this research guide is to provide researchers, students, and the general public access to the print materials available in the African American Library at the Gregory School. This research guide is divided into 2 sections: Houston and Texas. The Texas section includes people and events that are native to Texas, but not Houston, such as events taking place in Fort Worth or Dallas. Each section is then organized by subject and title of book. The books are arranged on the shelves using the Dewey Decimal System. It’s basically the address of the book on the shelf. This is not a comprehensive listing of all our print materials. Books are continually being added to the collection.
Please see staff for additional assistance.
