Visit the ARC

ARC lobby

Visitors are welcome to come to 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. This will ensure the materials are pulled and acclimated prior to your arrival. In person requests may be delayed if staffing levels are too low for safe machine operation.

Hours: Please use the Reading Room Reservation calendar, or contact us at 512-245-5272 to reserve the ARC's Reading Room. Due to Social Distancing Protocols, only two patrons may use the room at the same time. Priority will be given to patrons who make an appointment.

Contact: Campus and community groups may request a tour of the facility by contacting ARC Manager Mike Ellis: or
