General Public

TSHA offers a variety of educational resources for the benefit and use of the general public. These range from FREE access to the nation's premier online state encyclopedia, the Handbook of Texas Online; access to more than 100 years of the authoritative Southwestern Historical Quarterly; and a variety of content from the Texas Almanac to a diverse range of book titles.  

Coupled with this outstanding content are services intended to provide enrichment and engagement for both individuals and communities. We think you will find the material we publish from the brightest young scholars in our two student publications, the Texas Historian and Touchstone, both engaging and rewarding. If testing your knowledge of Texas history is more appealing, we have a the Texas History Challenge for your enjoyment. If sharing history with others in your community is of interest, we provide service for locating outstanding presenters for community gatherings through our Speakers Bureau.
