About the Gems

What are the UT Libraries Gems?

The Gems of the University are collections, tools, and artifacts at UT that we highlight as resources unique to this large research campus. Interacting with a campus Gem is one of the components for Undergraduate Studies Signature Courses. These courses are designed to facilitate first-year students' transition from high school to college-level learning. This Gem component enriches UGS Signature Courses by making tangible connections to course level content for undergraduate students.

UT Libraries are proud to offer many Gems for UGS Signature Courses to experience. Use this page to explore the Gems in the UT Libraries, including contact information and information for setting up an organized visit. If you know of a UT Libraries Gem that should be added here, please contact us (
