Administrative History:

The University Library was established at the Tyler State College, "TSC" (1971-1975) campus on East Berta Street in the Roberts Junior High School building gymnasium. Library technical services were housed in the locker rooms. Prior to library occupancy of the gymnasium students employed the personal libraries of faculty members for research and assignments. In addition to faculty lending, TSC students utilized the Tyler Junior College library with varying degrees of success. Following TSC's name change to Texas Eastern University, "TEU" (1975-1979) in 1975 and completion of Phase I of the university campus on Old Omen Road, the library collection and public services moved to the second floor of the new University Student Center. Technical services remained at the East Berta Street campus. From 1973 to 1977 James L. Mayfield served as Library Director. His responsibilities included federal resource grant applications, purchase requisitions, and supervision of book accessions, including the Seton Hall collection purchase in 1974. Olene Harned served as head librarian from 1973 to 1977. Appointed Library Director in 1977, Harned kept this position until her retirement in 1990. As director, Harned saw TEU admitted into the University of Texas System in 1979, the year technical services moved to the Old Omen Road campus. Construction of the current library concluded in 1980 and in December of that year Harned facilitated the transfer of the library collection, public services, and technical services to the new library building. In 1982 the library was dedicated as the Robert R. Muntz Library. In 1988 Harned supervised the automation of circulation and the establishment of a computerized library catalog with the barcoding of the library collection and the installation of a laser scanning system. Charles B. Harrel served as Library Director from 1990 to 2000. During his tenure renovations of the library's forth floor completed and the University Archives were established. The University Archives began with a proposal by University President George F. Hamm. Under the guidance of James Smallwood, graduate students David Caulkins, Linda Lauderdale, and Joe Vorsas used an office in the Registrars and a work room in the library to compile the history of the university by interviewing founding administrators, donors, and faculty members. In 1994 Caroline M. Allen was hired as the first University Archivist.
