Display: Women in the Workforce

Women have made great strides in achieving equality in the work place and the U. S. Government has published a substantial amount of information over the decades that documents that progression. Our Government Information department has created a display on the north west side of the Gearhart Reading Room that features documents concerning this evolution in our culture going back to the 1930s all the way to present day. The information was created by a wide range of Government Departments including, but not limited to, the Department of Commerce, Defense, Energy, Health and Human Services, Labor, NASA and more. All items featured are available for checkout. If you require assistance in finding additional information regarding women in the workforce please visit our Research Help Desk.

Holiday Reading – Library Staff Picks

If you are looking for a good read for the holiday break, stop by the second floor of the library, near the Research Support desk. Library staff have selected a number of books that can be described as “take a friend home for the holiday.” The selection includes fiction and non-fiction, and covers a wide range in reading preferences: science essays, real life adventure, literary fiction, science fiction, urban fantasy, humor, and more. If none of the staff picks fit your tastes, there are hundreds of best sellers and featured non-fiction books right around the corner. All TCU employees can check out books from the library, just bring your TCU ID. Books will be due back mid-January. Happy Reading!
