Have questions about your research?
We can help!
UCLA Library Special Collections created its Punk Archive, consisting of collections related to punk music and punk culture, to document punk as it has developed and been expressed in Los Angeles both within and outside of the traditional LA/Hollywood punk narrative. We are collecting the primary source materials of punk musicians, promoters, producers, managers, photographers, roadies, groupies, reviewers, artists, and any voices involved to highlight the diverse music and culture of LA punk. By archiving and preserving personal and business papers, photographs, sound recordings, oral histories, 'zines, publications, ephemera, flyers, buttons, and other items, it is our mission to inspire punk discovery and advance punk research.
Please see our L.A. Punk in UCLA Library Special Collections Research Guide for information about how to access the collections.
