Bridges are essential to the life of the Bay Area. At a time when Bay Area bridges are being analyzed and new structures are being planned, Bridging the Bay: Bridging the Campus features rare historical documents, drawings, photographs, maps, publications, and artifacts showcasing existing bridges in the Bay Area. It also includes documents detailing Bay Area bridge projects that were never built, including visionary designs by Bernard Maybeck and Frank Lloyd Wright.

The libraries represented in the exhibit are the Bancroft Library, the Earth Sciences and Map Library, the Environmental Design Library, the Harmer E. Davis Transportation Library, the Institute of Governmental Studies Library, the Kresge Engineering Library, and the Water Resources Center Archives.
