UCI Libraries Department of Special Collections & Archives (which includes the Orange County & Southeast Asian Archive Center) strives to strengthen our collections, cultivate non-custodial partnerships, and enrich the UCI, Orange County, and global scholarly community. We aspire to curate and disseminate a cohesive mosaic of historical information, in response to critical scholarship and with an eye toward future generations. We seek to be at the heart of the global scholarly endeavor through community-centered partnerships, robust research support, and creative teaching and learning resources.
We trust in community expertise and lived experience as the impetus for building impactful community-centered archives.
