Give 2 History: Secure the Past

October is Archives Month! The TMC Library is celebrating with a special opportunity to support the McGovern Historical Center. Help the McGovern Historical Center secure the history of the Texas Medical Center.

When you make a tax-deductible gift to the McGovern Historical Center, your money goes a long way. All levels of donation are welcome and support our work. Here are examples of how we utilize financial support:

$10 buys an archival box to preserve papers
$50 preserves one box of collection materials
$250 buys permanent archival labels for boxes
$500 purchases film preservation supplies
$1,500 supports a year of online access to our collections
$2,500 upgrades the camera we use for digitization
$5,000 helps us fund a 12-week internship for an archives student
Financial gifts made during October include three levels of special recognition:

Donors of $5 or more will receive special thanks
Donors of $50 or more will have their names permanently inscribed on an archival box label
Donors of $250 or more will be invited to a reception in the McGovern Rare Book Collection early in 2023.
Help the campaign follow and tag #Give2History on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. With your support, we hope to surpass our $1,000 goal for the month.

Additional information is available at the McGovern Historical Center Black Bag blog.

UT Archival Collections at the McGovern

Historical Center

The University of Texas has played a defining role in the Texas Medical Center ever since its founding. And the modern incarnation of its Houston footprint—the University of Texas Health Science Center, or UTHealth–is celebrating its 50th anniversary, having been formed in 1972.

TMC Library supports UTHealth by collecting, preserving, and making accessible the archives of its schools and faculty. The McGovern Historical Center is home to collections from several of these schools, including the McGovern Medical School, the School of Dentistry, and the UT Health Science Center at Houston itself.

In a push to ensure access to these records, archivists and interns at the MHC have recently processed a handful of small institutional collections from the UTHealth umbrella. 

Detailed information and access to the UT Health archival collections are available at the McGovern Historical Center blog.
