On Exhibit NOW in the TSLAC Lobby!
Archives tell the Texas story. Our history is revealed through the records we produce. Manuscripts, photographs, maps, government documents, artifacts, and sound and moving images tell us about our past. They also help us understand who we are today.
The Texas State Library and Archives Commission manages millions of these and other types of records.
So, we decided to let our staff take you on a tour of our stacks by spotlighting some of their favorite things. Archivists and librarians have selected items that offer a fascinating glimpse into our state’s past, and they share something about what makes those records unique and important.
Enjoy our STAFF PICKS!
TSLAC regularly exhibits treasures from its collections in the lobby of the Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building. We encourage you to visit to see these pieces of history with your own eyes. Of course we understand that not everyone is able to stop by 1201 Brazos Street in Austin, so we’ve digitized most of what we display for you to view here online. Please feel free to browse our current and previous exhibits linked to from this page.
