Open during the operating hours of The Doe Library

Ever since the publication of Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon in 1930, San Francisco has been recognized as the birthplace of modern crime fiction. Using materials from numerous campus libraries, "Bullets Across the Bay" examines the Bay Area as a popular setting for mystery and detective novels and highlights the richness of UC Berkeley's collections for the study of genre fiction.
