Houston
Higher Education

This section includes major colleges and universities in the Houston area. These locations often provide a wealth of cultural attractions for their communities. And for steampunks interested in conducting historical research, university libraries typically offer more resources (especially primary sources) than what you'll find in a public library. Though they exist primarily to serve students and faculty, many libraries make at least some services available to the general public. Most of these listings include information about library policies for community guests.
