The University Library frequently hosts exhibits organized around a theme of regional or national significance, or highlighting library collections or campus departments. Exhibits have featured the environmental movement, children's books, Chinese stone rubbings, and departments such as anthropology, Asian studies, music, and physics, among many others. See below for a complete list.

The 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire online archive, launched in 2006 by the Bancroft Library, is one of the most extensive digital collections created by Bancroft. The site uses the latest technology to bring the events surrounding the April 18 earthquake to life in ways never before achieved. Viewers can see a 360-degree panoramic view of San Francisco after the quake in a montage of photographs taken from the rooftop of Nob Hill's Fairmont Hotel; listen to a recording of famed tenor Enrico Caruso performing in "Carmen" at San Francisco's Grand Opera House the night before the quake; and view images, including an online movie, of refugee camps used for more than two years.
