Thank You, San Antonio River Authority

Earlier this year, former analyst Gina Cervantes and I were invited to the lovely Guenther Street office of the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) to present a class on managing electronic records. It was a lovely experience and a bond between TSLAC and SARA was forged.

Last month, SARA came up to Austin to visit TSLAC. Working with the Archives and Information Services division, we created a custom tour of our downtown De Zavala building for SARA which focused on archival materials that would be of interest to their unique functions. That afternoon we visited the State Records Center off of Shoal Creek to explore the SRC’s high density storage of state records.

Unfortunately TSLAC’s conservator was out on the day of SARA’s visit. SARA staff were still given the opportunity to check out her uniquely awesome office.

If you’re a local government or a state agency and you are interested in touring the Texas State Library and Archives Commission building, please fill out the form on our Request a Tour page. If you’re interested in getting to look at the State Records Center, contact your analyst. Lastly, if you’d like to request or attend a records management training, take a look at the options available at our training portal.
