The Holt Labor Library, founded in 1992, is a non-profit labor and radical history library located on the campus of New College of California School of Law. The library's collection includes books, current and historical periodicals, pamphlets, videos, audio tape and archives. A significant part of the collection contains out-of-print, rare, and other difficult to find materials.
The materials in the library chronicle the history of the struggle to organize trade unions, oppose wars, fight for civil rights, and save the environment. The library exists, not only to preserve knowledge and make it available for scholars, but to inform and engage union members, other working people, activists, the unemployed, youth, and other under-represented communities. We have a professionally trained librarian who provides on-site, telephone, and e-mail reference service. The library is open to the public by appointment four days a week.
Holt Labor Library maintains a web site to provide assistance to remote users. As well as describing the library and its services, out web site has links to our online library catalaog, online periodicals, labor law, occupational health, current labor news, and other relevant web sites.
