The labor archives contain archival material from hundreds of union locals and labor councils, statewide labor organizations, union political groups, district and regional offices of international unions, and legal firms specializing in labor law, as well as the personal papers of union officials. Collections range in date from 1870 to the present. Augmenting the archival collections are oral history interviews with more than 200 men and women union leaders or labor activists.
Texas Archival Resources Online (TARO) contains Special Collections' detailed guides compiled specifically to describe the arrangement and contents of a collection and to comment on its research potential.
