Texas State Library and Archives Commission

Hi. I work with the Texas
State Library and Archives Commission. As you may know,
we're embarking on a two year renovation of our main
facility in Austin. Below is a notice we are trying to
distribute out how (and when) the renovation will affect
our researchers. Any way you can help us get the word
out would be very much appreciated. I had hoped that you
would include something in Stirpes, or distribute to
your members in any other way you see fit.
Thanks for your help,
The Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library
Building, home of the Texas State Library and Archives
is getting a facelift!
This is good news for both our customers and our staff,
as the 46-year old building has been in great need of
construction work on the two-year renovation to begin in
but some important
changes are afoot now that may impact your research with
us. Please read on!
We are pleased that we'll be able to stay open
throughout most of the renovation; however, services
will be limited, and much of our collection will be
moved offsite. As with any construction project,
unexpected events may cause us to close for certain
We urge researchers
ahead when planning a trip to our facility.
The number is 512-463-5455.
With advance notice, the
official state records of Texas stored offsite can be
retrieved for you. Unfortunately a portion of our
collection will be inaccessible during the renovation.
and follow the Renovation News link, which includes a
timeline and will be kept current with news about our
services throughout the two year project.
Thanks for your patience and understanding as we bring
the 21st Century.
