The University of Texas at Austin and the Harry Ransom Center continue to take action to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Currently, we are closed to the public, and will reopen, if the situation allows, on May 1, 2020.
This includes closure of exhibition galleries, classrooms, and the Reading and Viewing Room. Also during this time, all events and tours are canceled. This decision is a response to ensure the health and safety of our visitors, researchers, staff, volunteers, and community.
We are pleased to provide modified research and reference services while working remotely. Read more.
The university continues to provide the latest information on a special “Guidance Related to the Coronavirus Disease” website, which includes safety measures and FAQs. Here are two other recommended sources that you and your family can consult to stay informed and up-to-date: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.
Given the evolving nature of the situation, we will share updates as they become available. Please continue to check our website for new information. As always, please contact us by email or call 512-471-8944 if we can answer any questions.
We appreciate your support as we all work to ensure the safety and well-being of the community.
