The Logan Library of Schreiner University has been an “official” part of my life as a student in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, as a Board of Trustees member in the 1970’s, and as a faculty member in the 1980’s until my retirement in the late 1990’s. Since then I have had the pleasure of working as a volunteer with the library’s Special Collections, particularly the Texas Hill Country material.
From the time when this library occupied a mere half of the main floor of the Tom Murray Building, to its present place in its own beautiful building; from the days of typed or hand-written 3” x 5” cards to modern computer access to the holdings; from an era when no one but the staff members had entrée to the book shelves, to today’s open stacks, the journey of the Logan Library has progressed to more and more openness and access, ease, comfort, and research success in finding and using the literature, history, and religious materials of the day.
We waded some creeks and climbed a few hills to be faithful to our mission. Now we are fording a river of constantly streaming information, and climbing a mountain from the top of which we will view our times from the widest angles ever. We are a small school by most standards, but we hold a number of books, documents, and research papers not otherwise easily available, if at all. We are pleased to begin the process of making them available worldwide on the Internet. Welcome to our project. May your time and effort be rewarded.
