The Velma K. Waters Library on the campus of  Texas A&M University-Commerce has remained open throughout the pandemic - though with some changes. The university's library provides resources and services for members of the general public as well as students, faculty and staff.

Among the library's offerings are several special collections, including a digital archive featuring items of regional interest. KETR visits with Head of Research and Learning Sarah Northam and Digital Archivist Adam Northam to learn what's been going on at the library, what's currently available and how to access the library's services and holdings. We also discuss last August's name change, when the university's main library was named after Waters. It had been named after former university president James G. Gee

Mark Haslett has served at KETR since 2013. Since then, the station's news operation has enjoyed an increase in listener engagement and audience metrics, as well recognition in the Texas AP Broadcasters awards.
