Tips for Locating Materials

  • 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 using the UCSF Library catalog, the Online Archive of California (OAC), or on HathiTrust.
  • To use the UCSF Library Catalog to search for archival materials, go to the Advanced tab and limit the Material Type to Archival Materials & Manuscripts.
