History of the Reference Round Table


As a project for the TLA Centennial, these files were created to document the history of the Reference Round Table. Through the generous cooperation of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (home of the TLA Archives), the American Library Association, and the Texas Library Association, copies of original documents from the TLA Archives and the ALA Archives were acquired. John C. Hepner (Texas Woman's University) coordinated the acquisition of materials, the writing of narratives, and the compilation of the web pages for this project. The Reference Round Table wishes to thank William R. Gordon, Executive Director of the American Library Association, and Patricia H. Smith, Executive Director of the Texas Library Association, for permissions to post selected documents from the respective archives collections. The files are periodically updated to include new developments.

The following tables are part of this history:

Past Officers (1964 to the Present) and Past Councilors (1980 to the Present) in the Officers section of the RRT website.

“Conference and Pre-Conference Programs Sponsored or Co-Sponsored by the Reference Round Table” (1965 to the Present) is the “Programs” tab in this section.

A “Chronology" of major events in the development of the Reference Round Table is the “Chronology” tab in this section.
