Special Collections and Archives has launched a new illustrated website (special.lib.uci.edu) that provides detailed information about the rare books and archival materials housed in the department.
The library’s special collections and archives are used every year by thousands of UCI students and faculty, members of the local community, and scholars who travel from throughout the United States and beyond to use unique materials found in no other library or archive. The new web site will make it easier to access these fantastic treasures and resources.
These are highlights of some of the materials now described on the new website:
Critical Theory Archive: A link to detailed guides for the scholarly papers of seminal figures such as Jacques Derrida, Wolfgang Iser, Stanley Fish, Paul de Man, Richard Rorty, and Murray Krieger.
Southeast Asian Archive: Major topics, people, and geographic places for which the Archive holds materials. Also a direct link to SEAAdoc: Documenting the Southeast Asian American Experience, a new digital resource containing thousands of items from the Archive.
University Archives: Lists of topics, publications, and archival materials (including photographs) in areas of major interest to researchers and UCI administrators and staff.
Orange County: UCI’s Orange County collections are the strongest in any library, and our archival, manuscript, and photograph collections in this area are our most extensive. Some areas of particular strength include environmental preservation, women in local politics and the public sphere, and early family histories.

Artists’ books: The section describing our collection of more than 400 artists’ books provides guidance on how to search Antpac for examples of the genre, particularly in our areas of emphasis: artists’ books by women, on contemporary American politics, and from Latin American nations.
The site also describes Special Collections and Archives’ services and helpful information for visitors from off campus. For further information, please contact Steve MacLeod, Public Services Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 949.824.4967.
