About Tyler

My name is Tyler Manolovitz and I am the Research/Instruction Librarian at The Woodlands Center. I've been with SHSU since 2008 and transferred to TWC when it opened in 2012 in order to provide research and and library services.

I played guitar in a rock band way back in the day, which is amazing because I wasn't very good at it. lol I had a lot of fun, though, and treasure the experience. I'm a 90s kid, so my musical tastes are rooted in the rock/grunge of that era, but I have a 10-year-old daughter and am trying to not fall too far behind. 

For more information about TWC, you can visit The Woodlands Center Libguide and/or reach out to me directly. I've been at SHSU long enough my email address is just :-) I look forward to meeting you!

Tyler's Playlist

I'm cheating and putting an entire album here. The Hazards of Love is a concept album, or rock opera, that uses the songs to tell a story. Many individual songs are amazing on their own, but it's the album as a whole I would recommend. 

Fountains of Wayne has had a special place in my heart since they were my very first concert in 1996, opening for The Smashing Pumpkins. One of the founding members, Adam Schlesinger, went on to have an amazing career writing for television, in particular as the Executive Music Producer for the hilarious show, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. He sadly died from complications due to COVID-19 on April 1st, 2020.

Most people think of Stacy's Mom or perhaps Red Dragon Tattoo as the most popular Fountains songs, but this is a band where I think their fuller catalog is much more rich and enjoyable. This is just one example.
