There are a number of discovery tools available in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, but the most important tool for conducting California based research is through the Online Archives of California (OAC). [See the link to the right of this message] This resource allows researchers to conduct key word searching to locate archival collections in the state, and one of the nice features is the ability to search by contributing institution. If you search under SJSU you will locate 16 inventories representing a variety of collections documenting the history of the local community, politics, the university, the arts, and literature.
Soon we will add new inventories for:
James P. Walsh papers
Alfred E. Alquist Papers
League of Women Voters San Jose/Santa Clara Records
Willard Schmidt Papers
