Special Collections

We have many items relating to campus history. Also available are books on local history, rare and valuable books on botany, mycology, art and architecture. The archive of the Academic Senate and the archive of the student underground newspaper Low are also kept in the Special Collections room. See our page of Collection Descriptions for more detail. We have placed some of our holdings online in our Gallery.

You can search the Library Catalog for some of our holdings, but keep in mind that a lot of our materials are not in the catalog.

  Policies This User Guide gives detailed rules about using our materials, including copying services, photoduplication policy and use fees.
