We have lined up another great speaker,      Laura Saegert, who will speak to us about Texas State Library and Archives Commission, its holdings, how to conduct research at the Texas State Library and Archives, its programs and its conservation efforts.

Laura Saegert received her B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin in 1978. She received her M.L.I.S. from the University of Texas at Austin in 1981.  She is currently Assistant Director for Archives in the Archives and Information Services (ARIS)Division, Texas State Library and Archives Commission, a position she has held since September 10, 2010.   Ms. Saegert has also been the Appraisal Archivist/Map Archivist in the ARIS Division of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission since November of 1981.

The Texas Heritage Society is very fortunate to have such an expert on the Texas State Library and Archives Commission to come and speak to us.  The home and main collections of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission are located in Austin, Texas in the Lorenzo de Zavala Building which is located across the street from the Texas State Capitol Building at 1201 Brazos Street.  These collections are amazing and can be extremely useful to those doing Texas historical research as well and Texas genealogical research.  Click here to contact the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
