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.
Resources with this icon may be accessed through on-campus computers, including those located in the Libraries. However, off-campus access is restricted to current UCSD students, faculty, and staff.
