Due to security concerns about use of the Peoplesoft number to log-in to library databases from off campus, a CougarNet log-in will be required for authentication as of August 1, 2010. This will only affect off-campus authentication. If you do not have an CougarNet account or have forgotten your username and/or password, please call Campus IT at 713-743-1411 or go to http://www.uh.edu/infotech/php/template.php?account_id=57 . If you are faculty or staff of the University and use the University’s Exchange email system for email and calendaring, this is the same username and password.

UH Libraries is proud to announce that the Gladys Ewing Debutante scrapbook is now available in the Digital Library!
This is a scrapbook kept by Houston debutante, Gladys Ewing, daughter of Judge Kittridge and Mrs. Kittridge Ewing. The ephemeral contents of the album include invitations, notes, dance cards, and much more — all in the beautifully graphic, formality and color of the Edwardian period. Miss Ewing starts saving these items during the very formal No-Tsu-Oh Houston Social Season in the fall of 1911 and continues through the winter Mardi Gras celebrations, Krewe parties and such. She was, it seems, the premier debutante of that season and served as Maid of Honor to the No-Tsu-Oh queen.
