Manuscripts and other publications

The first page of Sydney Lamb's unpublished Mono dictionary
A page from Kenneth Whistler's Master's thesis "Patwin folk-taxonomic structures" (1976)

Many valuable but unpublished or out-of-print resources on California and other indigenous languages are in the possession of the Survey, both as part of its regular collection and in its non-archival library holdings. We believe that these materials should be accessible to a wider audience, so we have made electronic copies of these unpublished manuscripts and some out-of-print volumes available here. We will continue to scan and add to this collection.
