The University of California, Berkeley is home to many extremely valuable collections of non-book artifacts and objects housed in campus museums, libraries, and archives. Managing, conserving, and providing access to these collections is an important contribution to the fulfillment of the University's research, teaching, and public service missions. These collections, including those that increasingly feature digitized materials, document the cultural, biological and physical diversity of California and many other regions and cultures of the world. The collections support research and teaching in many disciplines across campus, from Art to Zoology. The collections are large and diverse in content and many are among the premier collections of their kind in the world. The following archives, centers, departments, institutes, museums, libraries, and other university organizations house and maintain these collections.
- Oral History Center
- Mark Twain Papers and Project
- Center for the Tebtunis Papyri
- Digital Scriptorium
- Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life
- Bancroft Collections
The Research IT unit at UC Berkeley manages collection management systems for several campus museums using the CollectionSpace system.
