Baylor Collections of Political Materials

The Baylor Collections of Political Materials (BCPM), located on the first floor of the W. R. Poage Legislative Library, is an active congressional center dedicated to the study of the legislative process. Holdings of the BCPM include congressional, state, and local political notables. The strength of the BCPM is in its materials focusing on the political process. Our collections offer a wide-range of primary source records from correspondence, bill files, speeches, campaign memorabilia, and much more. Together, our holdings document government in action through the exchange of elected officials and their constituents.

The BCPM is open for research Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Please be sure you contact us at least a day before you arrive, if you are conducting research. The Reading Room is open to Baylor undergraduate and graduate students for quiet study Monday through Thursday 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Friday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
