Texas Tech Mixes New Tech with Old Texas

The Digital Projects Unit of the North Texas University Libraries has found a great way to promote their digital collections. The Portal to Texas History delivers a vast amount of scanned historical documents covering the history and development of Texas using Young Scholars' Pages, a Researchers' Portal, and Portal Services for Educators.

Well, most of us Yankees know about the Alamo, The Texas Rangers, and J.R. Ewing, but the UNT Digital Projects Department promotes their collections using a very well done promotional video. It looks at the day to day historical information using a modern day product. Yes, YouTube.

Take a look at the YouTube video teaser for the Portal to Texas.
