Throwback Thursday: The Daily Lass-O, 1953

A lot has changed since 1953.

The Texas Woman's University (formerly Texas State College for Women) student newspaper, called the Daily Lass-O until 1986, is now The Lasso.  Today, the paper's offices house Macs instead of manual typesetting.  Over the years, the Woman's Collection (home of the University Archives) has grown to become the largest depository in the Southern United States of research material about women.

One thing that hasn't changed?  The TWU Libraries' dedication to serving your information needs.  At the Blagg-Huey Library in Denton, the Dallas Center Library, and the Academic Resource Center in Houston, we provide access to a rich, evolving array of services and resources to support your academic life--and also spaces, technology and professional support with your success in mind.

Questions?  Please contact us.  We're here to help--and that will never change.
