Use this e-mail form to ask a question about University history, inquire about a potential donation, or ask other general questions.  This e-mail account is monitored by archives staff during regular business hours. 

Use this form to request an on-site research appointment.  Archives research appointments are encouraged to allow time for retrieval of offsite materials and to reserve research space.  Walk-in assistance is dependent on staff and space availability, as researchers with appointments are given priority.

Employees who have questions about Records Management at Texas State (including the records retention schedule, records disposition issues, or records management training) can use the Ask a Records Management Question form.
