Alkek Library was awarded a 2017 TexTreasures grant from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, to build custom film negative capture stations and digitize 6,000 at-risk negatives donated by the San Marcos Daily Record. This exhibit from the Digital & Web Services Department, in conjunction with the University Archives, previews the ongoing digitization process and images from the collection.

While books aren't the only things you find in libraries today, they still define us. Much goes into the production of a book, from the author's hand written, drawn, or typed manuscript to the printed book itself. Come see examples of codices, manuscripts and facsimiles of earliest to more contemporary books in the Alkek Library collections.
