Before making an appointment to do research in our reading room, determine what items you need to see from Archives and Special Collections. Often, they must be retrieved from off-site storage before your visit. You can search for archival materials in a few places:
- To find archival materials in UC Library Search, use the dropdown to limit results to Archives and Special Collections
- Search the Online Archive of California (OAC). Find descriptions and finding aids for archives and manuscript collections. Some collections have digitized items available on Calisphere.
- Search the HathiTrust Digital Library. Note: During closures due to COVID-19, HathiTrust is providing temporary access to copyrighted materials for UCSF students, staff, and faculty.
