Special Collections

The University of Texas at San Antonio Libraries preserve the legacies of San Antonio and South Texas through Special Collections featuring a rich array of primary resources. 

Strengths of the collections—which are open to academic and casual researchers alike—include San Antonio history, urban development and architecture, regional authors, Mexican cookery, women and women’s history, and the Texas-Mexico border region.   

Supporting the university's ascent to premier research university status, Special Collections sustains the university's teaching, research and outreach mission by acquiring, preserving and digitizing primary resources for use by students and scholars at UTSA and from around the world.
