Finding What you Want in the Archives

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

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.

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.

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.
