This page has information about using the archives. You'll find out how to make an appointment, how to find out more about the collections, and how to use the reading room.
To schedule an appointment, please contact the archives staff at email@example.com.
You can also reach the Archivist (Diana Wakimoto) at 510-885-4287 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can reach the Archives Assistant (Anna Graves) at 510-885-3892 or email@example.com.
The University Archives is available by appointment.
Reading room hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm.
Closed Saturday and Sunday.
Please be advised that the last pull of material is one hour prior to closing of the reading room and on Fridays researchers will need to complete their research by 4:50pm as the entire library closes at 5:00pm.
These rules are designed to allow you access to the materials for research and also protect the materials for future researchers. We are grateful to you for abiding by these rules so that we can provide access to these resources for years to come.
There are three ways to find information about the collections available in the University Archives. You may use the libraries’ online catalog to search for completed finding aids, use the search box to find materials via the Online Archive of California, or use the original indices (link below).
If you have any questions, please contact the archives staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Searching via the Libraries’ Online Catalog
Catalog records for the archival collections can be retrieved via the library’s catalog; however, the catalog does not include a comprehensive set of records for the archival collections; records are added as the staff finishes finding aids for the archival collections.
You can limit your search to the “Archives Collection” under the Location limiter.
Link to Original Indices
All of the original indices (aka box lists) for the archival collections processed before 2009 may be accessed via the searchable PDF link. The file is quite large and may take several minutes to download.
Search Finding Aids in the Online Archive of California
The University Archives has its finding aids and digital images available via the Online Archive of California (OAC). Please use the search box below to search our collections.
