The University of Texas at Austin

Research Visit


The Briscoe Center will undergo a major renovation of the first floor of Sid Richardson Hall in 2016, considerably enhancing its exhibit and research spaces. While every effort will be made to maintain public research access to our collections, there may be changes to our policies and available collections due to construction. If you plan to conduct research at the center in 2016, please contact us before making travel plans to determine how the renovation may effect your research efforts. Thank you!

Due to space limitations, many of our materials are stored in off-site locations. These must be requested in advance of your visit.

How do I know if the things that I want to see are stored off-site?

If you are in doubt about the storage status of something, please contact us and we will be happy to check on it for you.
