University Archives

Alkek Library, Room 580

 

Research by appointment

Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm

 

univarchives.txstate.edu

 

The University Archives is located on the 5th floor of the Alkek Library.  Research appointments are generally available Monday through Friday between 7:30am and 4:30pm (excluding holidays and energy conservation days).

 

Research appointments are required to allow time for retrieval of offsite materials, to reserve research space, and to allow staff to sanitize the space between researchers.  Walk-in assistance is dependent on staff and space availability, as researchers with appointments are given priority.  As a reminder, masks are required at all times while in the Alkek Library and in the University Archives. 

 

For questions or assistance, please Ask an Archivist.
