Reading Room Materials
A ready reference collection is available in the University Archives reading room. It includes:
- biographical files arranged alphabetically by name (including curriculum vitae, photographs, biographical statements, and other materials)
- photograph files arranged alphabetically by subject
- subject files arranged alphabetically by subject
The collection also contains selected departmental histories, course catalogs, yearbooks, commencement programs, student directories, and other materials.
Material Stored Off-site
All other primary source materials, indicated by a record series number, are stored off-site and must be paged by University Archives staff; users can then consult them in the reading room. Finding aids for the University Archives collections can be found on the Online Archive of California. When requesting material, provide the record series name and number and the box numbers. Materials requested before 10 a.m. are generally available the same day after 3 p.m.; requests made after 10 a.m. will be available for use the next business day after 3 p.m.
Printed guides and handouts describing the University Archives collections and services are available upon request. Information on specific collection areas and relevant collections is also available online through the following links:
