The UCSF Library and Center for Knowledge Management is an invaluable and comprehensive resource for UCSF students, faculty, staff, and trainees, as well as doctors, nurses, and health care providers at UCSF and all over the Bay Area. Additionally, its unique online resources are utilized by students, caregivers, researchers, and UCSF alumni around the world.

If you are a regular visitor to the Library, the Teaching and Learning Center, or the Library's many online services, we encourage you to consider supporting this important resource by making a tax-deductible financial contribution.

Are you a UCSF alum or student? In addition to the papers of faculty members and the records of University offices and departments, the University Archives is happy to receive materials from UCSF alumni, students, and student groups. These materials not only shed light on the academic experience at UCSF but also help us develop a more complete picture of student and faculty life on campus.

Typical items welcomed by the University Archives include:

  • Records of student organizations (meeting minutes, founding documents, reports, publications, flyers, photographs)
  • Publications (newsletters, programs, flyers, yearbooks)
  • Artifacts (buttons, memorabilia)
  • Materials that describe or document your personal experience at UCSF (scrapbooks, diaries, correspondence with faculty, administrators, fellow students, and family, photographs, audio-visuals, born-digital materials)

If you have materials you would like to donate, please contact Polina Ilieva, UCSF Archivist.
