Historical collections


Catalogs, or bulletins, from most U.S. four year colleges and graduate programs, plus major institutions from throughout the world (1977/78 - 1999/2000) are available in the College Catalog Collection on microfiche housed in Cubberley Library (call number: Education MFICHE 578.) A microfiche reader/printer is available.


The Stanford Libraries maintain an extensive paper collection of historical (pre-1976, including the 19th century) college and university catalogs housed in Cubberley Library's storage. These also include catalogs or bulletins for teachers colleges and/or normal schools and junior colleges. We are in the process of creating Web-based finding aids for these, but until these are up consult the staff in Cubberley Library (, or (650) 723-2121) for information on holdings and assistance using this collection.

A collection of pre-1976 paper editions of foreign college catalogs is available in Cubberley Library, but not represented in SearchWorks, the online catalog. For access to this collection, consult with staff in Cubberley Library.
