Special Collections & Archives

Beginning September 20th, the Verle & Elizabeth Annis Reading Room on the 5th floor of Langson Library will be open Monday through Friday, 10am-4pm. No appointment is necessary, but it is strongly encouraged to select an arrival date when requesting your material. For additional information please visit the "Start Your Research" page. 



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.
