Texas State Library and Archives Commission Overview

0 Comment



Welcome to the Texas State Library and
Archives Commission. Over 100 years ago state leaders created our agency to
ensure that citizens have access to the information they need to lead informed,
productive, and fulfilled lives. The Texas State Library and Archives
Commission accomplishes this objective through four main areas. Preserving the
archival record of Texas – Archives and Information Services. Enhancing the
service capacity of Texas public, academic, and school libraries – Library
Development and Networking. Assisting public agencies in the maintenance of
their records – State and Local Records Management. Meeting the reading needs of Texans with disabilities – Talking Book Program. We live in an information-based
economy and the continued success of the state depends on the access to
information that is provided through these four programs for virtually every
citizen in the state of Texas, regardless of age geographic location or
physical ability. As we move into the digital age, our programs are migrating towards
increasingly digital content including the creation of the Texas Digital
Archive as a repository of state government information in electronic
format. The immensely popular TexShare and TexQuest programs are brimming with digital content available through public and
academic libraries. And the rising use of digitally recorded books by patrons of
our Talking Book Program. The Texas State Library and Archives Commission – ensuring Texans have access to the information they need to live informed productive
lives. tsl.texas.gov
