Manuscripts & Archives

Manuscripts and archives can be critical sources for in-depth research, particularly in fields such as history and literature.  The UCSD Libraries have extensive collections for on-site use, as well as selective access to manuscripts and archives held in other repositories--either online or in microform.

The databases and other resources listed below will help you find out what’s available at UCSD and beyond.
