Authors should consider and explore a variety of resources. Archival copies of non-public resources must be included when cited.
The archives of Texas A&M University house materials dated to the founding of the University. The extent and availability of these materials may be determined by contacting Lisa Kalmus, Curator, Sam Houston Sanders Corps of Cadets Center and Greg Bailey, University Archivist and Clements Curator, Cushing Memorial Library & Archives.
These materials include:
The Texas A&M University photo repository – see Office of Business Development at (979) 845-4621
Other print resources include various books regarding Texas A&M history, including those generated for special events, such as The Semi-Centennial Celebration book provided to Texas Legislators in 1926 and their authors.
Former students may also prove to be helpful resources. To the extent research includes personal recollections, authors must preserve the former student’s recounting, whether on video or audio, with details including the former student’s name, contact information, and date of recording. Where former student memorabilia is used, scans or high resolution photographs of each cited item should be included, with details as to source.
