Celebrate UCSF History During Archives Month


October is Archives Month! Please take this opportunity to explore the resources in Library's Archives & Special Collections Department. Archives and Special Collections preserves and maintains rare and unique materials to support research and teaching in the history of the health sciences.

Learn about the rich history of UCSF on the Library's website, A History of UCSF. The site draws on materials from Archives & Special collections and includes a chronological history, photographs, and individual essays on important figures, buildings, and special topics. New content was added recently, including biographical sketches of every UCSF Chancellor.

The above photo of the Affiliated Colleges on Parnassus, c. 1900, is part of the UCSF Archives and is also available as a greeting card in the UCSF Library's Zazzle store. The online store carries merchandise with images from Archives and Special Collections.
