The University of California History Digital Archives
comprises a collection of digitized historical documents, images and materials,
along with past and current analysis on the history of the University of California.
The original project began at the Center for Studies in Higher Education and was
created by John Douglass and Sally Thomas. The goals include: one, to organize and
collaborate with other efforts to preserve and provide access to archival materials;
two, to provide a resource for the academic community and the general public; and
three, to promote discussion on the history of the university and its future. In
2005, the project transferred to The Bancroft Library where it is now under the
direction of the University Archives.
