Library Collection

The Laredo Regional Campus Library has full access to the electronic resources licensed by The Libraries. In addition, the library has a variety of print books and journals and a collection of consumer health materials.

Mr. Victor Oliveros, a pioneer in border health issues in Laredo/ Nuevo Laredo as a founder of the U.S. Mexico Border Health Commission, was Chief of Environmental Health Services for the City of Laredo Health Department. Mr. Oliveros retired in 2005 and donated many print materials and slides to the Laredo Regional Campus Library.
