Library Director's Greeting


Hello! I am Rodney Webb, Library Director at the Sue and Radcliffe Killam Library. Welcome to the electronic connection at the Killam Library. The Library began its first year of operation in 1995 as an independent, university library. We are in the process of building collections and designing services at a fascinating time when the definition of library service is changing rapidly due to electronic information sources and telecommunications. We invite you to take advantage of these trends and explore the information resources in our library. You may also wish to contact the Killam Library staff via E-mail if you have questions about our services.


The Sue and Radcliffe Killam Library

Students and faculty at Texas A&M International University benefit from an attractive library facility that is well equipped to handle traditional print library resources as well as the rapidly expanding electronic library services. It houses more than 196,000 bound volumes and provides access to 1,492 print periodical subscriptions and over 8,000 electronic journals in full text or full image. Over 765,000 microform units and over 70,000 state and federal documents are available to library users. During fiscal years 1999-2000, the Killam Library was involved in a major collection development project that allowed us to increase our book holdings by 50% and our journals subscriptions by 24%. During those two years we purchased 70,357 new book titles in paper, and over 400 audiovisual media. We also acquired over 11,000 eBooks, subscribed to 282 new print journals, and purchased the complete microfilm backfiles of The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal all of this in coordination with the University faculty.


The Texas A&M International University library belongs to TexShare, a state-wide resource sharing network featuring joint electronic databases, and the following state-wide services: an interlibrary loan agreement supported by a courier service and Internet document delivery and a universal library ID card. The Killam Library is also a member of OCLC, the largest library network in North America, which makes the collections of other institutions available to our library through interlibrary loan. The library also belongs to a consortium of other Texas A&M University System libraries which recently implemented the Endeavor Voyager library automated system.
