Library Resources

 The ARC traditionally receives College of Business  books, video streaming, DVD, mixed media kits, and other media materials. Information on library policies is at   https://twu.edu/library/about-the-libraries/library-policies/ when you wish additions to the ARC.  

Other library resources include university libraries, but the cost of fulltext online limits most materials to those with a university-specific username and password, so keeping connected with your undergraduate school, your public city, county, state, and other libraries can help you find more fulltext. Many free internet sites like Cyndi's List have free genealogy information and other sites offer free information if you register to become a member. Remember that the quality of TWU library resources are usually the resources your faculty prefer you use in your TWU assignments, so be aware of your assignments, sources, and what your faculty anticipate for your very best TWU learning experience.
