If you are really interested in "Psocoptera" this book is very useful. Even though it is in French, the illustrations are extremely good and very helpful with difficult identifications. I could not function without it.

Some results of the University of Kansas entomological expeditions to Galveston and Brownsville, Texas, in 1904 and 1905.
By Snow, F.H.
Transactions of the Kansas Academy of Science, 20: 136-154., 1906
Full Text - BHL

Snow, F.H. (1906) Some results of the University of Kansas entomological expeditions to Galveston and Brownsville, Texas, in 1904 and 1905. Transactions of the Kansas Academy of Science, 20: 136-154.

The writer conducted two entomological expeditions to Texas for the museum of the University of Kansas in the years 1904 and 1905. Each of these expeditions had Brownsville, the extreme southern point of the state, as its objective point, but on account of the wretched connections with the one lone steamer between Galveston and our destination, as well as the limited time at our disposal, we spent the three weeks of our first stay, in May, at Galveston, but succeeded in reaching our original destination by rail in 1905, by the new Gulf Coast line.
