Archives and Manuscripts link

The Austin History Center houses over 1,200 manuscript collections that contain the papers and records of City and County departments, local families, civic and cultural organizations, businesses, and institutions. These valuable primary research materials fill more than 8,000 linear feet of boxes. Detailed inventories for many of these collections are available to researchers by searching our ArchivesSpace catalog or viewing the printed guides to collections in our Reading Room. Additionally, inventories of some collections can also be found at Texas Archival Resources Online (TARO). Here is a guide to using our finding aids found on TAROContact Us if you would like to inquire about a particular collection.
