Northern Regional Library Facility


Richmond Field Station Bldg 400



The Northern Regional Library Facility (NRLF) is a cooperative library storage facility. It is owned and operated by the University of California and is located on the grounds of UC Berkeley's Richmond Field Station. The 98,000 square foot main building was completed in 1982; an 84,000 square foot stack annex was completed in 1990; and a 67,000 square foot storage module, as well as a new reading room were added in 2005. The Facility offers high density, low cost housing for infrequently used library materials belonging to northern California libraries. At this time, depositors to NRLF are libraries on the University's Berkeley, Davis, Merced, San Francisco, and Santa Cruz campuses, and the California State Library.
