The index to this guide is very helpful in identifying relevant collections in microfilm and other formats which can be used at the Archives themselves, or, in many cases, at other libraries. UCSD holds some of these and many others can borrowed through inter-library loan. Such holdings include copies of many collections from foreign archives.
Provides free public access to detailed descriptions of primary resource collections at 150 institutions throughout California, including all ten UC campuses.
