The most efficient way to request information from the Archives is to use the Ask An Archivist form.  Archivists monitor this e-mail account during regular business hours.

For records retention questions, please e-mail RecordsRetention@txstate.edu or use the Ask a Records Management Question form.

Graduate Assistants

Students with an interest in archives gain real-world experience working in an archives as they assist the unit with a wide variety of projects.  Graduate students in the Public History Program generally have the basic knowledge needed to work in the Archives.  Graduate students in other programs are welcome to apply; the Archives seeks reliable and detail-oriented students who have computer skills and an appreciation for history.

Potential graduate students must meet Graduate College requirements before a hire can be considered.  See the Graduate College Graduate Assistantships for more information about requirements for holding a GA position.

NOTE: Because of COVID-19, there are no Graduate Assistant positions available from Fall 2020 through Summer 2021.  However, we will consider internship or independent study positions for students who wish to learn more about the archival profession.
