Additional Resources

Libraries, archives, museums, and other institutions have produced a wide variety of resources for students, teachers, genealogists, and researchers, not all of which can be included in Texas Heritage Online. Please consider using the following additional resources:

The Handbook of Texas Online

The Handbook of Texas Online is a multidisciplinary encyclopedia of Texas history, geography, and culture sponsored by the Texas State Historical Association. The online Handbook offers a full-text searchable version of the complete text of the six-volume print edition, all corrections incorporated in the second printing, and many articles not included in the print edition due to space limitations.

Online Exhibits from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission

The Texas State Library and Archives Commission produces online exhibits showcasing various topics in Texas history, displaying many documents and photographs from our collections. Online exhibits include Texas Treasures, Texas 175: A Dozen Documents That Made A Difference, Triumph and Tragedy: Presidents of the Republic of Texas, Portraits of Texas Governors, and many others.

Teaching Texas is a collaborative project between the Texas State Historical Association, the University of North Texas Library's Portal to Texas History, and Texas Heritage Online, hosted by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Funding was made possible in part by Humanities Texas, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The purpose of this site is to provide a tool for educators, which brings together in one place the diverse resources for teaching Texas Studies in order to both save time and promote awareness of what is available.

Texas Archival Resources Online (TARO)

TARO makes descriptions of the rich archival, manuscript, and museum collections in repositories across the state available to the public. The site consists of the collection descriptions or "finding aids" that archives, libraries, and museums create to assist users in locating information in their collections. Consider these an extended table of contents which describe unique materials only available at the individual repositories. In most cases, the collections themselves are NOT available online.

Texas Beyond History

Texas Beyond History is a public education service of the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin, and in partnership with the Department of Anthropology at Texas State University and 15 other organizations. Begun in 2001, its purpose is to interpret and share the results of archeological and historical research on the cultural heritage of Texas with the citizens of Texas and the world.
