Law Librarians Tour the Alamo Research Center

July 18, 2014

On Monday, July 14, the Alamo Research center hosted some special guests.

The annual conference of the American Association of Law Librarians (AALL) was held in San Antonio earlier this week. Two groups of conference attendees included a tour of the Alamo Research Center on their itineraries. They came from all over the country- and even from as far away as New Zealand! We were delighted to welcome them to the Alamo and the Alamo Research Center.

Since very few of our visitors were from Texas, we spent some time getting everyone up to speed with a Texas history lesson.

Amelia, one of the Alamo Educators, joined us as the librarians examined some of the Texas treasures from the Daughters of the Republic of Texas Library Collection.

Leslie showed the librarians our vertical file and periodical collections as well as helped them understand more about the Research Center and its functions.

Jaime and the librarians visited the Vault to explore the legal resources available in the collections, including printed maps, plat and survey maps, land patents/grants, deeds of all kinds, correspondence, case files, and more.

We hope that everyone who visited enjoyed the experience as much as we did!

Group tours of the Alamo Research Center are now available for small groups, and we also offer small exhibits for medium to large group. We can schedule a tour during business hours or as an After Hours Tour. Please contact Leslie Stapleton, Director of the Alamo Research Center, by calling (210) 225-1071 or emailing drtl@drtl.org, for more information. The Alamo Research Center would love to be a part of your next VIP event or group entertainment!
