College Archives is the program responsible for collecting, storing, and preserving TCC's history and 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, TCC 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 College Archives is to preserve history and provide educational support to the student, scholarly, and public communities.
Whereof what's past is prologue; what to come, in yours and my discharge.

The past is never dead. It's not even past.
–William Faulkner, Requiem for a Nun
Accessing the Collections
TCC's holdings constitute a public trust that are maintained permanently and timely processed to make them readily available for research, teaching, and learning.
