Lack of scholarly information or its access is a widely cited problem by people studying the U.S.-Mexico border region. The Texas Center for Border and Transnational Studies is attempting to address this problem by establishing a Digital Border Studies Resource Center. While the digital resource center is a component of the UTB/TSC libraries, it will be closely affiliated with the center. The project is funded by a grant from the National Leadership Planning program awarded to the UTB/TSC library from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The grant requires that UTB/TSC establish cooperative agreements with other U.S. and Mexican institutions, as well as with governments, NGOs and cultural institutions on both sides of the border in order to preserve and to make accessible scholarly writings and original historic documents as research materials. Additionally, UTB/TSC's libraries are partnering with the Texas Digital Library (www.tdl.org) to provide the preservation and access to the materials submitted to the resource center at UTB/TSC.
