The Food Industry Documents Archive is created by the University of California San Francisco Library in collaboration with the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies.
Funding for the initial 'Sugar Documents' Collections has been provided by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation and the Samuel Lawrence Foundation. The scope of the Food Industry Documents Archive is expected to expand beyond sugar.
The mission of the UCSF Industry Documents Library is to identify, collect, curate, preserve, and make freely accessible internal documents created by industries and their partners which have an impact on public health, for the benefit and use of policymakers, researchers, clinicians, educators, students, and the general public at UCSF and internationally.
The UCSF Industry Documents Library seeks to advance health worldwide by serving as a freely accessible global information resource providing permanent access to documents which shed light on industry practices which impact public health.
