The University of Texas at Arlington Libraries has one of the best
collections in the U.S. on the Mexican American War.  The other
excellent collection would be at the Bieneke Library at Yale.  Our
concentration is primarily on printed material (books, maps, broadsides
(U.S. and  Mexican), newspapers (U.S. and Mexican), Congressional
documents, sheet music and graphics) supplemented by manuscript
material.  In 1995  Texas A&M Press published a guide to our collection
entitled: The Mexican American War of 1846-1848: a bibliography of the
holdings of the  Libraries, The University of Texas at Arlington.
Unfortunately the book only shows our holdings to June, 1991, when the
manuscript was  completed. You can search our on-line catalog through
the UTA Web site (a href=http://www.uta.edu/library/>http://www.uta.edu/library/).  
The catalog will list all the books and Congressional documents.  
The maps, broadsides, sheet music and graphics are only available 
through manual catalogs.
