The Archives and Special Collections reading room is closed until further notice due to COVID-19. We will be able to provide limited online reference service during this closure.
Our mission is to identify, collect, interpret, and provide access to rare and unique material. We support research and teaching of the health sciences and medical humanities and preserve the institutional memory of UCSF. For more, see About Us.
We’re Open to the Public by Appointment
Monday through Wednesday from 9am to 4pm. Physical materials require supervised access due to their unique and often fragile nature.
