Our libraries are currently cultivating a team of professionals and seeking highly innovative and enthusiastic individuals who want to contribute to our growth and development. Under new leadership, we are excited to rethink how library functions have evolved during the pandemic and embrace hybrid and remote work opportunities for some positions. As an Association of Research Libraries (ARL) member, Texas State’s University Libraries are at the forefront of advancing equitable, enduring research and scholarship. We are creating a culture of creativity and experimentation as we pursue librarians, archivists, curators and specialists at all levels who want to support student success and be a part of the university’s “run to R1.” 
Our libraries provide vital services and resources that fuel the success of research and innovation at Texas State University. We comprise three facilities and two prestigious collections that are continually evolving to meet the needs of the growing university and an ever-changing, technology-driven world. The Albert B. Alkek Library in San Marcos offers a rich collection of digital and print resources to support student learning and enhance faculty teaching and research. The Round Rock Campus Library supports the research and information needs of faculty and students on the growing Round Rock campus by offering all the resources and services of a large academic library in its comfortable setting. The Archives and Research Center is a state-of-the-art preservation library that will protect decades of university treasures and library resources. The Wittliff Collections is a campus gem that is committed to preserving the creative legacy of the Southwest through its Southwestern Writers Collection, Southwestern and Mexican Photography Collection and Texas Music Collection. These three cultural pillars provide the keystone for discovery of our region's heritage through thousands of archival treasures collected firsthand from such icons as Cormac McCarthy, Sandra Cisneros, Edward Curtis, and Willie Nelson. The University Archives provides the key to unlock the stories of Texas State University that connect its past to its present. The collection includes materials that document the history and legacy of the university and provide researchers with unique sources of information about Texas State and the Hays County region.
