The academic heart of Texas Chiropractic College is the Mae Hilty Memorial Library. Located on the first floor of the Learning Resource Center, the library offers students—as well as the chiropractic community at large—a wealth of learning resources to augment and support the TCC curriculum.
The Mae Hilty Memorial Library was founded in 1953 by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Texas Chiropractic Association. It was named to honor Mae Fivecoat Hilty, a chiropractor’s wife who gave her life saving a nephew from drowning. With Mae Hilty as an inspiration, the library continued to grow and, in 1982, moved to its current location in TCC’s Learning Resource Center.
The TCC library exists to support the scholarship of students and faculty and to assist in providing information to the chiropractic community at large. Toward this aim, the library offers a variety of services to its patrons and collects books, journals, and audiovisual materials in the disciplines of chiropractic, basic science, medicine, and clinical techniques. The Library also provides facilities for group and individual study, computer use, and copying.
Researchers in the Houston area are looking for volunteers to join clinical trials to test the efficacy of a vaccine against COVID-19. The vaccine has already passed the Phase 1 safety trial, and now needs to be offered to more people to verify how well it works. Volunteers are compensated for their time and travel.
