Database: Texas Reference Center
If you have a school assignment about Texas or just have an interest in the topic, a great place to start is the database: Texas Reference Center. This database contains full text books and periodicals covering both historical and current Texas events, places, and people. For example, a search on San Jacinto Monument brings back 28 hits. Some are chapters from books about the history of the Monument, others are articles about current events from periodicals like Houston Chronicle, Dallas Morning News, Texas Monthly, etc.
To access the database, go to our webpage at www.hcpl.net and click on Databases, then Texas, then Texas Reference Center. Like most of our databases, this one can be accessed from home using your library card number.
