Archives Collections in the CCSF Library

A brief description of the collections, and their locations, in the CCSF Library Archives Room 335, Rosenberg Library.

Academic Senate (CCSF Faculty)

Academic Senate agenda, minutes and working papers for both the Credit and Non-Credit Divisions.  Incomplete from 1970 to the early 2000s. Material in later years is unprocessed, and newer materials will need to be acquired from the Academic Senate Offices.

Shelved in boxes by date. Centers division materials (Non-Credit) prior to district reorganization in 1990-91 are housed in two separate boxes. The collection is shelved  from the North-East corner, extending along the East Wall of Rosenberg 335.

Accessions Book, Library

Two bound accessions books for the SF Junior College/City College of San Francisco libraries.  These reflect book acquisitions from item 00001 through item 51401, 1936-1955, including purchases and gifts. Many early acquisitions were noticed by libarians in Guardsman Newspaper articles, and large gifts, including the initial gift from the University of California are recorded.  Some samples of books from the early era have been retained, as they were removed from the general collection, and are shelved in Archives as examples of the relationship between accession enumeration and book processing.

Alice Myers Book Collection

Alice Anspacher Myers provided books for Merchant Ships Libraries during World War II. After the war she donated many of these to the San Francisco Junior College Library (now CCSF). Each book bears an invocation to the reader, handwritten by Mrs Myers, and an address for readers to correspond with her about the books. The variety of titles is of some interest, and the appeal to each reader is thoughtful as well as innovative.

The collection of Alice Myers books are located on top of the cabinet along the South-West corner of R335.


File folders and boxes, containing various documents related to SFJC/CCSF anniversary celebrations and exhibitions. Contents vary.

Located in file folders on Shelves in the SouthWest corner of R335.

Annual reports, financial reports, financial plans, budgets, etc. varied by format and title, 1959- 2009 (incomplete). Includes published "Annual Report to the Public" published in the late 1990s to the early 2000s.
