Research guide for History

Theses & Dissertations

You may find great help from theses and dissertations. While you may find these types of sources available from Swoop Search, there are two repositories available with online access:

University Archives & Special Collections

The University Archives and Special Collections (UASC) is part of the Robert R. Muntz Library and supports the missions and goals of the Library and UT Tyler. The collections represent the history of the University and the surrounding communities of Tyler and Smith County. 

The UASC is also home to the University's Institutional Repository, Scholar Works. Scholar Works houses the scholarly and creative output of members of UT Tyler faculty, staff, and students. Our archivist, Terra Gullings, can also answer questions about copyright and publishing.

Microfilm Collections

Through the years the Robert R. Muntz Library has purchased a number of microfiche, ultrafiche, and microfilm collections of historical primary documents. They are housed in cabinets on the second floor of the library. Machines for reading, saving to flash drive, emailing, and printing these documents to paper are at the other end of the same wall. All printing from microfilm and fiche is free to all students, faculty, and visitors.
