Special Collections & Archives

**The Special Collections and Archives Annis Reading Room will reopen on June 5, 2023 until August 25, 2023 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10 am - 2 pm. Please contact us to request an appointment.** 


Special Collections and Archives (SCA) houses the university’s collections of rare books, manuscripts, photographs, ephemera, born-digital files, and other unique materials. Our holdings include university archives, critical theory, performing arts, political literature, and a growing collection of artists’ books. In the Orange County & Southeast Asian Archive (OC&SEAA) Center, we lead a community-focused effort to preserve and catalog our local culture.

We welcome students, staff, faculty, independent researchers, and community members to visit us on the fifth floor of Langson Library or in the OC&SEAA Center.
