19th Amendment

 This week commemorates the anniversary of the 19th amendment.  This amendment, formally adopted on August 26, 1920 into the Constitution of the United States, granted women the right to vote.  The woman suffrage movement had begun to flourish the previous century, however, through efforts of women such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and Susan B. Anthony.  For additional information, visit the This Day in History website. 

Information on the 19th amendment, the woman suffrage movement, and related topics can be found in Waggoner Library, for example:

Trevecca Archives

Trevecca's Thrasher Archives are located on the ground floor of the Library and are available for use by appointment.  Materials housed in the Archives include university documents of historical significance and special collections. Trevecca's Archives joins with the School of Religion and the Alumni department in hosting the annual Trevecca Heritage Series. Former Trevecca Presidents Millard Reed and Homer Adams have been recent honorees. Many of the documents and artifacts from their presidential administrations are kept in the archives.  If you want to view or use documents or photos we recommend you set an appointment with the Archivist Andrea Fowler prior to visiting the library. Come by and take a look around!

See You OUTSIDE the library!

Waggoner Library is excited to now offer two large picnic tables for your use on the front porch of the library building.
So join us for a picnic lunch, or just hang out in this beautiful weather we have been having! Either way we hope you will love our new seating area as much as we do!

School Days

It's "Back to School" time!  Maybe not for most Trevecca students but for thousands of children across Middle Tennessee.  And some of our Trevecca students are right there with them, as student teachers in many of our public schools.  Waggoner Library has some great resources for teachers, whether just beginning their career or a seasoned veteran.   In our Instructional Resources Center there are materials for organizing and decorating the classroom, books with lesson plan ideas, and many fiction and non-fiction books for the school-age child.  In our main collection on the 3rd floor, we have books covering a variety of important topics in education, including classroom management, curriculum and instruction, and first-year teaching.  Waggoner Library's Undergraduate Education LibGuide is a helpful resource especially for our "teachers-to-be."
