The library’s website provides access to its catalog and electronic databases and a “California Library Directory” that draws from academic, special, state, state agencies, public, and county law libraries. In addition to the materials already described above, its genealogy collections include:

Pioneer Record File: biographical material on Californians who came before 1860—information submitted by the actual pioneers or by their descendants.

Biographical files: California artists, authors, actors, and musicians along with material on California political leaders.

Directories: a large collection of city, county (from the 1850s) and telephone directories (from 1897).
