Preserving Our Past - Educating Our Future

The District Archives is the program responsible for collecting, storing, and preserving the College’s history, retired institutional records, and managing its special collections. 

It is the official repository for the College’s institutional records that have historical value and require permanent retention.

Additionally, Tarrant County College is one of just a few Texas community colleges fortunate enough to have donated items and collections in its archives. The Heritage Room Special Collections, as they are collectively entitled, have proven to be a rich and valuable resource on Texas culture and history.

The primary function of the District Archives is to preserve history and provide educational support to the student, scholarly, and public communities. 

Accessing the Collections

Its holdings constitute a public trust that are maintained permanently and timely processed to make them readily available for research, teaching, and learning.
