The University Archives is the designated repository for records, documents, publications and other material pertaining to the University of California, Riverside. Located in Special Collections & University Archives department, the Archives houses campus materials of enduring historical value. Our holdings document the history of the campus from its beginnings in the early 1900's as the Citrus Experiment Station (CES) to its present form as a thriving academic institution within the University of California system. These resources support university administration, the institution's educational goals, and community outreach activities. The Archives' holdings are non-circulating and are open for use by the campus community as well as the general public during normal operating hours.
The following collecting areas have been established for the University Archives:
- Official University administrative records and publications
