Hi Marshall, I just noticed that you still have the listing for the Daughters of the Republic of Texas (DRT) Library at the Alamo. Here is your permalink: https://librarytechnology.org/library/3502 I wanted to let you know that the library closed in 2016 when the DRT was forced from the Alamo. The state of Texas over custodianship of the Alamo and tried to sieze the library's collection. The DRT fought back and eventually won the entire collection, which is a wonderful Texas history research collection. That is the very short version of what happened. The result of which is that the DRT had to find a new home for their collection. The collection is now on loan to Texas A&M University-San Antonio and is a huge part of our young and growing Archives & Special Collections. I was lucky enough to get to make the move with the collection. All of the records from our catalog were transfered to the University's catalog in WorldCat.
