Baylor University Libraries Athletics Archive

The Baylor University Libraries Athletics Archive (BULAA) is a growing repository of materials related to Baylor University’s proud athletics tradition. With the goal of presenting materials from every sport (men’s and women’s) from all eras of Baylor’s storied history, the Archive features materials from private collectors, former coaches and the special libraries of the university.

Baylor University Press Releases

The Baylor University Press Releases Collection features more than 33,000 news releases issued by the university between the 1920s and the 1990s. Covering topics as diverse as on-campus speakers; the results of sporting events, debate tournaments and beauty contests; the impact of world conflict on the campus community; and the hundreds of student-produced productions staged every year, the collection provides unequalled insight into the daily life of the university as reported by its own media communications professionals.

All items have been processed using OCR (optical character recognition) technology to allow for keyword searching. Please note that materials from the 1920s-1940s are often scanned from originals that were copies of copies, so highly accurate searches may be unavailable for those items. We are working to enhance the metadata for those items to ensure greater accessibility.

The Baylor University Round Up

The Baylor University Round Up has served as Baylor’s annual yearbook for more than a century. This collection contains digitized copies of the full run of extant Round Ups up to the year 1979.
