Alkek Library Government Information is a federal and state depository library.

The depository collection consists of U.S. government and State of Texas documents, including books, serials, and maps. This large collection includes items in print, electronic, and microfiche formats.

We serve Texas State University students, faculty, and staff, as well as the local community.


Knowledge will forever govern ignorance...

A popular Government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy, or perhaps both.

Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.

James Madison (Letter to W.T. Barry, 1822)
