Texas Library Snapshot Day

The Research Medical Library is joining libraries across the state to participate in “Texas Library Snapshot Day” on May 5, 2010.  Librarians will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs, and other data to chronicle a single day in the Research Medical Library.  The results will be combined with other libraries across the state to demonstrate how libraries provide an invaluable service to Texans.

Stop by the Research Medical Library on Wednesday, May 5, and enter a drawing to win one of the following prizes:

  • iPod shuffle (2 will be awarded)
  • USB flash drive (3 will be awarded)

We will also have our famous homemade cookies available at the Information Desk.

The program is part of an initiative of the Texas Library Association and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.

If you have questions about Texas Library Snapshot Day, contact Stephanie Fulton at: or 713-563-1722.
