Rosa Parks to the Free Speech Movement: An inside look at some of the UC Berkeley Library’s digitized treasures

Each of our treasures at the UC Berkeley Library is a window into the past — a snapshot of a moment in time. 

And at the Library, we want to share these treasures with the world.

Watch our video for a glimpse of just a few of the Library’s digitized materials, including photographs of some of the places, movements, and people (from Rosa Parks to Albert Einstein) whose memories live on in the Library.

The Library recently launched an all-in-one portal for exploring our digital collections. Discover our gems.
