Everyone is welcome to research and explore our distinctive collections.
We are here to preserve, share, and promote the Library's unique primary sources for the use of UCSC's academic community as well as the general public.
Our collections include the University Archives, photographs, maps, rare books, and the archives of many individuals and organizations. These materials support a variety of research projects in the arts, humanities, and history of science.
