Manuscript Collection: The Prickly Pear Press

The Prickly Pear Press had an impressive history of publishing critically acclaimed poetry since its founding in 1973 by Dave Oliphant. While primarily a “regional” press, in that most of its authors are Texans, the appeal of its books has been widespread. The press’s publications have been recognized nationally and even internationally for their original designs and for their quality contents. The Special Collections department of the Mary Couts Burnett Library, Texas Christian University, is the depository for the archives of the press as well as the papers of Dave Oliphant, founding editor, and several of the poets published by the press, including William Barney and Joseph Colin Murphey.

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.
