The new Archives and Research Center (ARC) is a state-of-the art archive library that will preserve decades of university treasures and library resources, collections and research materials. Its climate-controlled environment with cold temperatures and low humidity will prolong the life of these unique assets keeping them available for exploration and discovery, while supporting the growth of the Alkek Library and Texas State. The facility is open to the public and includes a reading room to allow students, faculty, staff and researchers to review and interact with materials on site or, if preferred, materials checked out from the ARC can be brought to the Alkek Library to make accessing materials quick and easy for patrons on the San Marcos campus.
