Townsend Memorial Library

The University library contains resources to support research in disciplines leading to degrees and collateral material for breadth of comprehension. The library acquires materials in greater depth in those disciplines for which graduate work is offered. Graduate faculty and librarians select materials specifically to support the curriculum. Monographs, full-text journals, databases, and cataloged web sites provide infrastructure to graduate research.

Library services are directed to increasing the successful delivery of pertinent information. Librarians teach skills to allow the student to determine the extent of information needed from the wide array available. Effectively and critically surveying a subject to identify needed information and evaluating its validity and authority are research techniques taught in classroom and personal instruction that contribute to information literacy and lifelong learning. If books or journal articles needed for research are unavailable at Townsend Memorial Library, graduate students may borrow materials from other libraries either through interlibrary loan or by means of a TexShare card.

Townsend Memorial Library currently provides 36 public access computers containing the Microsoft Office Suite for word processing as well as searching capabilities for the online catalog, databases, and internet.

The library contains total volume holdings of over 209,000 items, including books, audiovisual materials, and electronic books. The library subscribes to about 500 print journals and there is online access to more than 140,000 full-text journals. The library provides access to 125 subscription databases and almost 27,000 electronic book titles.

Current UMHB graduate students who have a valid library account may access library resources electronically from off-campus locations. Additional information about the library may be found at or by calling (254) 295-4637 or (877) 316-3313 (toll-free).

Library hours are Monday-Thursday 7:30 a.m.–1:00 a.m.; Friday 7:30 a.m.–5:00 p.m.; Saturday 10:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.; and Sunday 2:00 p.m.–1:00 a.m.
