Chicano Studies Research Center Library

Serving the UCLA and Chicano community since 1969

Dear Users,

CSRC Library is closed. During this closure, all collections and books are unavailable for onsite research. We are providing limited remote reference services with some onsite support such as digitization and research services.

For reference support, you can:

  1. Email us at
  2. Contact us on UCLA Slack at #csrc-library-reference. Not only Slack? Learn more here. (For UCLA-affiliated staff, students, and faculty only.)

We are actively monitoring the situation and will update our homepage with changes and updates to our hours or services.

We thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay safe and be well.

Xaviera Flores, Librarian and Archivist

About Us

Welcome to the Chicano Studies Research Center Library LibGuide! 

This guide is here to help students navigate all the services the Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) Library has to offer, plus provides information about other Chicano/Latino-related resources to help students with their research on Chicano/Latino-related subject matters.

Things to know before getting started:

  • The library is both library and archive.
  • We hold thousands of primary and secondary source materials on and offsite.
  • The library's secondary sources—books—are located in the library stacks, which are open to browse but not check out (they do not circulate).
  • The archives are stored offsite at the Southern Regional Library Facility (SRLF) and require advance notice to bring them onsite for research.
  • You can find more information about collections, research topics, and course resources on the left-hand menu.

We are continuously adding more information, but if you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at
