Collection Overview

UC Berkeley's African American Studies Collections are concentrated in the humanities and social sciences, housed in the Gardner (Main) Stacks of the Doe Library. More specialized materials can be found in over 20 subject specialty libraries on campus, including Moffitt, Education-Psychology, Environmental Design, Public Health, Social Welfare, Music, and Law Libraries. In addition, the Bancroft Library’s holdings include manuscripts, photographs, and many first editions. The Collections are very strong in microfilm editions of important research materials, including the personal papers of prominent African Americans and other records, particularly those of organizations, such as the NAACP and CORE. For these holdings please see African American Microform Collections in the UC Berkeley Library - A Bibliography.
