Bancroft and the West

The Bancroft Library’s Western Americana materials offer an unparalleled opportunity to explore the West through primary and secondary sources. The Library has launched a new initiative that aims to connect these treasures to the diverse communities the collection represents — and to provide even greater access to the stories that make the West, the West.
