We are happy to welcome schools, organizations, businesses, and local cultural heritage groups for tours of our Special Collections & University Archives. Tours are available by appointment only according to the guidelines listed below. For more information on tours and scheduling please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 956-882-7968 (Brownsville) or 956-665-2726 (Edinburg).
Tours must be scheduled in advance and are only available at the convenience of library staff.
The tour organizer (not library staff) is responsible for coordinating the following:
Making sure the tour group arrives at the library on time.
Notify library ahead of time if there is a specific topic you wish to cover.
If participants are not able to attend the tour, then you may consider an alternative learning experience such as an online archives tour, available through the National Archives (https://www.archives.gov/), Library of Congress (https://www.loc.gov/), and the Texas Digital Archive (https://tsl.access.preservica.com/)
Due to limited space and staffing, we can only accommodate groups of 5-15 patrons.
Please arrive on time for your scheduled tour. We reserve the right to cancel and reschedule your tour if your group is more than 15 minutes late.
Our hours of operation are subject to change without prior notice.
