The University of Texas at Austin


The University of Texas Archives preserves and makes available for research the non-current, historically valuable official records of the University of Texas at Austin and the UT System administration; the personal and professional papers of significant UT administrators, faculty, and staff; and any other materials, of varying format, which substantively document the history and development of the institution.

The UT Archives currently maintains some 4,500 linear feet of material including institutional records, personal papers, books, periodicals, official and student publications, scrapbooks and clippings, microforms, sound recordings and oral histories, photographs, maps and drawings, and audio-visual material. Among the cornerstone collections are the administrative records of the Chancellor’s Office, the Board of Regents, and the President’s Office, all of which trace the development of the University and the many important policy decisions it has faced.

Inventories for the following UT related collections are available online. For additional resources see the Center’s Archives and Manuscripts Index and the University Libraries Online Catalog.
