TXST Faculty and Staff Authored Books for 2018-2019

NOVEMBER 1, 2019 – JANUARY 6, 2020

Every year, University Provost has a reception for the Texas State University authors who have published a book in the previous fiscal year. This year’s books were published between September 2018 and August 2019. After the reception, the books are displayed on the 2nd floor of the Alkek Library, before going into the library’s collections. Come see what some of your professors have written this year! See all the books in our Texas State Faculty Author Collection.

Library Renovations: Alkek 2020 Vision

October 2018 - Spring 2020

The Alkek 2020 Vision is the plan for transforming the Albert B. Alkek Library into a place where the Texas State University community can do research, study, collaborate and also explore, create, discover and innovate. The $14.3 million renovation, which is expected to be complete by early 2020, will include major modifications to the library. Read more about the work that is underway, see renderings of the exciting new feature and spaces being added, find the latest information about where the work and noise will be happening each day, and see an overall timeline for the project on our renovations web page.
