New digital collection highlights sheet music of the 1900s

Over the years, the UT Arlington Fine Arts Library had accumulated a sizable collection of print sheet music scores. Thanks to an internal library grant, it was possible over a three month period in 2016 to digitize a small sampling of this collection. By making this collection available to a global audience, researchers worldwide will have the ability to study the history of the United States from a unique perspective since sheet music from this era can reveal much about public opinion and the social and political issues of pre-1923 America.

¡Viva México! A Comic Book History of Mexico

The Golden Age of the Mexican comic book, known in Spanish as historietas, began in the 1930s with the publication of comic book digests that serialized U.S. strips like Superman, Dick Tracy, and Betty Boop, combining them with strips by Mexican creators. This digital exhibit celebrates the artistry, invention and diversity of the Golden Age of Mexican comic books. Here, through these humble comics, are the heroes and villains, the triumphs and the tragedies, and the cultural icons that have defined modern Mexico.
