The Conservation Society library is a unique resource for research, focusing primarily on the history of San Antonio, its architecture, and its natural environment. The library houses a variety of collections, including books, clippings files, photographs, maps, architectural drawings, and oral histories. One full-time librarian oversees the daily operations of the library, assisted by a small group of dedicated volunteers.
Volunteers not only assist with research requests as needed, but also perform many of the “behind-the-scenes” tasks required to keep the library functioning. Typical projects include cataloging, collection inventory and care, and keeping our files up to date with recent articles on preservation/planning issues and local history. Basic computer skills are useful, but not always required. For more information, please click here
