Note on Holiday Hours
The Special Collections Research Center will be closed from 12pm December 24th through January 4th. We will reopen for researchers January 5th and return to our regular hours: Monday through Friday 8am - 5pm, by appointment.
The Special Collections Research Center is comprised of several specialized book collections, manuscript collections, the University Archives and the Central Valley Political Archive. Anyone is welcome to use our collections but all materials must be viewed in the reading room. A picture I.D. is required while conducting research. Photocopying is done by Special Collections staff.
Note: The Pickford exhibition will remain open all hours the library is open through winter break, though with restricted access. Patrons wishing to view the exhibition will need to ask to be let in to the Leon S. Peters Ellipse Gallery at the Circulation Desk, and notify them when you are finished viewing the exhibition so it can be locked back up.
