Baylor Digital Collections

With items spanning seven centuries, four continents and topics local to international, the Baylor University Libraries Digital Collections are among the most unique in the world. Professional historians, scholars, researchers, genealogists and passionate amateurs alike will find our collections enlightening, enriching and of the highest quality.

Library Catalog/Onesearch

Use the Libraries' online catalog to identify books, journals, audiovisual materials, electronic resources, etc. available from any of the Baylor University Libraries and several electronic databases. Nursing faculty, staff and students do not need a separate library card to borrow materials from the Nursing LRC.  Your name should already be in the library database.  All we need to see is your building ID badge.


Make valuable research available to other researchers by establishing a community and/or collection of research which might include: conference papers, preprints, post prints, technical reports, working papers, white papers, etc.
