Planning Your Visit

**In response to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and to support the health and well-being of our university community, UTSA Libraries will be closing the Special Collections Reading Rooms at the John Peace Library and the Hemisfair Campus.

We regret any inconvenience but know that you share our desire to do everything possible—based on guidance from public health officials—to help protect our community during this time. Please feel free to email or call 210-458-5505 if you have questions or need more information.

As additional information becomes available about when the Special Collections will re-open, we will share it.

Visit the University’s website at for news about UTSA’s efforts to help protect the campus community.**

Not sure if we have what you are looking for?

If you are still uncertain as to whether our collections meet your research needs after browsing them online, please feel free to contact us for assistance.

Unfortunately, due to staffing constraints, we are not able to provide in-depth research services on your behalf. If your research requires detailed examination of a collection, we ask that you schedule a visit to conduct your own research. If you are unable to do so, you may want to consider hiring a professional researcher to perform the work for you. A list of independent researchers is available upon request.
