The Robert R. Muntz Library has a small State Depository for state documents housed on the 3rd floor of the library.  As you come off the stairs, turn right and go down to the 7th row on your right.  It falls between the regular sized books and the oversize books.  The collection includes General and Special Laws, Senate Journals, House Journals, and archeological reports, among other documents.  All are listed in the catalog.  In addition, the Muntz Library has the Texas General and Special Laws for the 19th century on microfiche in the reference area.
