It’s Official: The DRT Library Collection Has a New Home
Thanks to the generosity and support of Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, county officials and Texas A&M-San Antonio, the DRT’s library collection has a beautiful new home. The new library location was made official by the signing of a “Memorandum of Understanding”(MOU) by Dr. Betty Edwards, DRT president general, and Dr. Cynthia Teniente-Matson, president of Texas A&M University-San Antonio, on November 22, 2016. This document outlines the five-year loan of the DRT Library contents to the university. The collection will now be known as the DRT Collection-Texas A&M-San Antonio.
The collection, which has been in storage since it was moved from the Alamo Complex earlier this year, will be housed at the former Federal Reserve Bank Building in downtown San Antonio, where it will once again be available to the public. Current plans are to move the collection at the end of January 2017 with an official opening planned for mid-March 2017.
Leslie Stapleton, as a TAMU employee, will be the DRT collection director. She will be joined by archivists Stefanie Wittenbach and Jaime Barre.
