Visit the ARC

ARC lobby

Visitors are welcome to come the Archives and Research Center (ARC) to make use of the Reading Room or to check out items. Items located at the facility will have ARC in the location title in the catalog description. The fastest way to check out items from the ARC is to request them through the online catalog. Onsite requests require a Net ID and may take a few minutes to process.

Hours: Due to COVID-19 concerns, the ARC is currently closed to the public. Please contact us at 512-245-5272 if you need virtual assistance. Texas State students, faculty or staff may schedule a visit using the Reading Room Reservation calendar. Due to Social Distancing Protocols, only two patrons may use the room at the same time.
