We moved to a new library catalog, UC Library Search, this summer! The new platform has a lot of improvements and advantages.
Unfortunately, it's going to take us some time to update all of the links to library resources on this page. In the meantime, you can search for the items below via UC Library Search.
Thank you for your patience and we hope you enjoy the new library catalog!

This exhibit highlighted three air photo sets recently purchased by the UC Berkeley Library that cover San Francisco in the critical post-war years through 1958. Flown by Pacific Aerial Surveys, these large-scale images capture detailed snapshots of the rapidly developing city. We were joined by special guest Dave Ruiz, Imagery Analyst & Data Archivist at Quantum Spatial's Novato office, to learn about how these air photos were produced.
The following air photo flights cover San Francisco in the post-war years and are owned by UC Berkeley. All of them were flown by Pacific Aerial Surveys.
David Rumsey recently scanned a few historical air photos sets of San Francisco in collaboration with the San Francisco Public Library and the Western Neighborhoods Project.
