Repository description (CRHP): This repository houses an extensive oral history collection which is one of the largest in Texas. Within the oral history collection are many individual interviews which pertain to race relations and the civil rights movement, especially in Lubbock, Texas.
Repository description (extant): The mission of the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library is to provide uncompromising service:
To fellow staff members, in a cooperative effort that recognizes the dignity and worth of individuals and their potential for unique contributions, and therefore promotes more efficient operation and better service to patrons.
To patrons from the university community, by actively striving to determine the research
needs of faculty, staff and students; by making resources available to the greatest extent possible; and by serving as a center for interdisciplinary activity.
To patrons from the larger regional/national community, by acquiring, preserving, securing and making available the resources that are considered useful for the present and posterity, and by offering outreach programs to inform the public of our resources and mission.
