Required Reports Prepared by State Agencies and Institutions of Higher Education (Fiscal Year 2023)
This biennial report evaluates the usefulness of reports prepared and submitted by a state agency to other state agencies by statute. Each biennium, the commission will recommend to the legislature the repeal or consolidation of statutory reporting requirements, striking a balance between reducing the volume of reports and protecting the public interest and ensuring government accountability.  You can download the complete report or view different sections:

Legislative Report — Broadband Stimulus, 2011
To bridge the digital divide, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission is coordinating an ambitious initiative to reach new or underserved computer users in traditional and non-traditional settings. Texans, especially those in rural areas, will benefit directly from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act broadband grants by receiving increased access to broadband and therefore, better access to resources that support education, employment and self-sufficiency.

Loan Star Libraries Program Survey Report, February 2012
TSLAC surveyed the 541 accredited public libraries between September 26 and October 12, 2011 to gauge the impact of the Texas legislature's elimination of funding for the Loan Star Libraries Program of direct state aid to Texas public libraries. The report reveals the extent to which libraries depended on this funding, with 84% of the 334 survey respondents unable to identify a way to compensate for the funding loss.
