The Round Rock Campus Library (RRC Library) supports the research and information needs of faculty and students at the growing RRC.

The RRC Library is located in room 255 of the Avery Building and makes information resources, computers and printers available to the campus community. To learn more, visit our website : rrc.library.txstate.edu . The newest addition to the University Libraries is the Archives and Research Center (ARC) at the Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Park. The ARC is a state-of-the-art library that preserves decades of university treasures and library resources, collections and research materials. Its climate-controlled environment with cold temperatures and low humidity prolong the life of these unique assets keeping them available for exploration and discovery while supporting the growth of the Alkek Library, the RRC Library and Texas State. The library facility is open to the public and has a reading room to allow students, faculty, staff and researchers to interact with materials on site. Daily transportation of materials checked out from the ARC to the Alkek Library will make accessing the materials quick and easy, so patrons will not need to drive to STAR Park to retrieve desired items. For more information visit our website: library.txstate.edu/ARC.html . The Wittliff Collections and University Archives are collections unique to Texas State that preserve the heritage and legacy of the university and Southwest region. Committed to preserving the creative legacy of the Southwest to instruct and inspire future generations, The Wittliff includes the Southwestern Writers Collection, the Southwestern and Mexican Photography Collection, and the Texas Music Collection. These three cultural pillars provide the keystone for discovery of our region’s heritage through thousands of archival treasures collected first-hand from such icons as Cormac McCarthy, Sandra Cisneros and Willie Nelson. Located on the seventh floor of the Alkek Library, The Wittliff features beautiful galleries, exhibition spaces, an archival research room and an event space. Faculty and staff are encouraged to visit the free museum-like space which also features a Lonesome Dove collection with original set pieces and costumes from the renowned miniseries.
