Bancroft Library 

UCB The Bancroft Library holds many unique collections concerning Native American history. Undoubtedly, most valuable here is the collection of vocabulary lists for 75 Native California languages, compiled by C. Hart Merriam. These have been critically important in language revitalization efforts. To locate the lists, search "C. Hart Merriam" in the Online Archive of California (listed below), and look for the links to "vocabularies" in Volume 1 of the Merriam papers. Other Bancroft collections of special interest to Native American researchers include the Honeyman, R.H. Lowie, 

A.L. Kroeber, Coronel, Samuel Barrett, J.W. Powell, and Philip Stedman Sparkman collections. Land case maps, dating from the 1500s, are used to determine California land claims. For these, search the OPAC by place name. Oral histories are also a trove of the Bancroft. Search OskiCat for Indians North American oral history as subject keywords and limit to the Bancroft library. You can search/ browse the "California Cultures" collection through Calisphere ( You can also access the Honeyman collection and others through the Bancroft Library site,, but it seems that the online collections are through either calisphere or OAC.
