Texas A&M University-Central Texas archives collect official records of the institution, materials related to its history, and other resources, for use by students, the academic community, and external researchers. The role of the archives is to identify, acquire, manage, and preserve university records of enduring value and make them available for use in accordance with policies approved by A&M-Central Texas administration and faculty. As part of Texas A&M University-Central Texas Library Services, the archives program supports research, scholarship, and life-long learning throughout the scholarly community.
The A&M-Central Texas University Archives places primary emphasis on:
In keeping with the overall A&M-Central Texas Library Services collection development goal to build collections that support our users’ information needs, the archives acquire, preserve, and make available research collections of both published and original source materials, particularly those related to the local academic community and the broader cultural heritage of the Killeen – Temple – Fort Hood metropolitan area and Texas.
Materials documenting the history and development of A&M-Central Texas, American Technological University, University of Central Texas, the Tarleton State University-Central Texas, Fort Hood Military Base, the Killeen – Temple – Fort Hood metropolitan area, and Texas history are the basis of the archives' collection development goals.
Types of Records Collected (but not limited to)
Library staff will assess the long-term historical value potential of all items transferred to the Archives. Staff will process and catalog the records and make the items available for research. Acceptance of material to the Library Archives does not commit the Archives to retain material in perpetuity.
