80 years of Texas Business Review Available Online with Help from Texas ScholarWorks

Bureau of Business Research announces new access to all articles going back to 1927.

In connection with the celebration of the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Bureau of Business Research (BBR) at The University of Texas at Austin, the Bureau is pleased to announce new digital access to the entire print run of articles published in Texas Business Review (TBR), one of the oldest and most influential business journals in the state.

The Bureau published Texas Business Review (ISSN 0040-4209) from 1927 until 2011, when it was discontinued for financial reasons. TBR articles were designed to turn academic business research into information that could be used by lay business owners and policymakers. TBR contained articles on a wide variety of issues but generally focused, in the last decade of its existence, on topics related to high technology, entrepreneurship, and international trade, especially with Mexico and Latin America.

TBR articles documented changes in the Texas economy over the decades and will be of interest to economic and business historians, students of Texas history, and others interested in the story of Texas.

Full-text issues of the entire run of TBR are available through Texas ScholarWorks, the digital repository of the UT Austin Libraries.

Colleen Lyon, Scholarly Communications Librarian with University of Texas Libraries, and her team arranged to scan the entire back catalog of TBR as part of the Libraries’ Digital Projects program. Library staff digitized over 13,000 pages to complete the project.
