access to the San Antonio Light
I am a professor at UT-Austin and I am interested in consulting the *San
Antonio Light *, the old daily newspaper for the years 1970 onward. Your
library seems to be one of the few that have the years I am looking for. I
will be in San Antonio this coming Monday and I am wondering if outside
researchers can have access to your library. Thank you for your time.
Sincerely, Frank Guridy

Yes, you are welcome to visit our library and view the San Antonio Light. We do have it available on microfilm, but unfortunately there is no index available. Our hours for next week are 8am - 6pm. When you arrive at the library, just stop by the Library Help & Information Desk, now located at the Circulation Desk, and we will be glad to direct you to the microfilm.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
