Special Collections & Archives

The Verle & Elizabeth Annis Reading Room on the 5th floor of Langson Library will be open Monday through Friday 12PM - 4PM. Duplication services are available, however, the processing time may be longer than usual due to limited staffing. Please be advised that per UCI's policy, face coverings are required indoors at all times while on UCI campus. This is a rapidly-changing situation and we appreciate your understanding and patience. 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.
