Welcome to the Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA) community page of A&M-Commerce Digital Commons, the institutional repository for Texas A&M University-Commerce (TAMUC). This page showcases Digital Collections and archival materials belonging to the Velma K. Waters Library.

Digital Collections is a division within SCUA that provides long-term preservation of, and access to, born-digital content and digitized surrogates of select materials, from our physical collections. Visit Special Collections Collecting Scope to learn more about the type of items we collect. Digital Collections in this institutional repository contribute to the intellectual output of the university, promote TAMUC research needs, and serve the larger community of scholars.

Access and Use

Physical collections available to researchers have accompanying finding aids that detail general organization of the material. Finding aids may be viewed in ArchivesSpace, and full collections may be viewed in person in the SCUA reading room. Materials here are intended for research, and citation examples can be found in each record. Please contact us regarding permission to use materials in publications. For more information about collections highlighted here or to schedule a visit, contact archives@tamuc.edu or visit About the Special Collections Department.

Statement on Potentially Harmful Material

Libraries and archives collect materials that are reflections of the time periods and societies in which they were originally created. As a result, some of the materials in our holdings may contain content that is considered racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobic, biased, violent, or otherwise offensive.

Texas A&M University-Commerce and Velma K. Waters Library do not endorse the views expressed in any such material. The items are preserved and presented for educational and research purposes, and as an effort to present a complete view of historical record.

Thank you for your interest in the Special Collections page at A&M-Commerce Digital Commons!
