Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler, Library Style

Students, faculty members and other patrons of the libraries at Texas Woman's University instinctively turn to us for academic research, studying and all things course-related.  Less obvious?  Your libraries at TWU in Denton and Dallas--and the Houston ARC--are hubs of information you can use for job hunting, holidays, keeping fit, family histories and so much more.  The TWU Libraries are here not only for your research, coursework and studying--we're also here for your life.

An exampleMardi Gras '13 is on Tuesday, February 12thDid you know the libraries' collections include Mardi Gras children's books and Cajun cookbooks; books and other resources on New Orleans, Mardi Gras, Jazz, Bourbon Street, Mardi Gras parties and Cajun food; and a veritable parade of other electronic and print information? 

For Mardi Gras or any other part of your life, turn to TWUniversal (think of it as library Google), type in what you're looking for--and laissez les bons temps rouler, TWU Libraries style.
