The Orange County Collection

Founded in 1972, the Orange County Regional History Collection continues to expand in breadth and depth. It documents the cultural, social, political, religious, economic, racial, and environmental history of Orange County from the mission period through the present.

Our goal is to surface the historical records and cultural heritage of Orange County for research, even materials not held by the UCI Libraries. We are actively engaged in and seeking ongoing non-custodial, equitable partnerships to ensure sustained preservation and access to the histories of the region, especially related to social justice and communities under-documented in the historical record.
