The UT Tyler Robert R. Muntz Library has created a book display for Hispanic Heritage Month. The display features a selection of books and DVDs from our collections, photos and information on some famous Hispanics, and a copy of the Presidential Proclamation for the month. We would like to remind our readers and patrons that all books and DVDs in the case are available for checkout. Simply ask at the Circulation Desk, and they will be happy to open the case for you. The following books were included in this  year's display. They are listed by author's last name. We are featuring a selection of academic books and popular fiction. All books are usually located in the General Stacks (third floor). The DVDs are usually behind Circulation, and you can ask for them there.
