Visiting the Materials Library

The library is off the central nave of the main building on CCA's San Francisco campus at 1111 Eighth Street. The CCA community of students, faculty, staff, alumni and donors enjoy free access to the resource center for individual research or class use.

Hours are posted for the academic year, and appointments are encouraged for class visits. During summer session when the facility is closed, please start your materials research with our Material Connexion database. Email or call 415.703.9557 to inquire about access.

Development of the Materials Library

In development since 1999, the resource center was funded by three major grants from the George Frederick Jewett Foundation (for a total of $75,000).

Leslie Speer, David Meckel, Tim Perks, Tylor Garland, and Matt Paprocki were instrumental in getting the project off the ground. The collection is now administered by the CCA Libraries.
