Welcome to the David Glenn Hunt Memorial Library

The David Glenn Hunt Memorial Library provides a broad selection of print and electronic materials, organized for effective use by faculty, students, staff and the community. Dr. Hunt was Galveston College’s founding president. He helped start Galveston College as it opened its doors in 1967. The Library, named in his honor, promotes scholarship and basic research necessary to the academic programs and assists patrons in their research. The Library is open to the public and holds more than 40,000 volumes, both hard copy and online. It provides a state-of-the-art computer catalog system along with videos, magazines, and a special Computer Lab for use by students doing research or class papers. A Galveston College ID card is needed to check out materials and use the Computer Lab.
