Transferred from University Communications in 1987, 2000, 2006, and 2007.

Alternative Forms of Material

A selection of images from this collection has been digitized and is available in the Online Archive of UCI History .

Processing History

Processed by Leah Loscutoff, 2009-2010. Student employees Cesar Gallagos, Anne Ngyuen, Alice Kwak, and Thao Le helped with some processing.

Processing Note

Over the years the University Communications photographs were processed piecemeal as different accessions arrived. To enhance access, this collection has been completely reprocessed. For the most part, the original order of the collection has been retained, but series spanning multiple accessions have been brought together. This collection has been minimally processed in that images are described sheet by sheet, or folder by folder, rather than at the item level. Although most items are sleeved in archivally safe sleeves, not all of the photographs in the subject files are sleeved. Researchers will need to use gloves when looking through the subject files. Although physical processing was kept to a minimum, detailed description of the photographs will enhance access.
