    Title: UC Davis Web Archives
    Date (inclusive): 2011-2013
    Extent: 473 online resources
    Abstract: The UC Davis Web Archives, created using the California Digital Library's Web Archiving Service (WAS), preserves websites in the entire "ucdavis.edu" domain to document the history of the University's activities and accomplishments. Special Collections, as the repository for the University Archives, collects records of historical value for the University. Previously, many of these records have been in print form, now much of that information can be found on campus websites. This ongoing project, started in 2011, captures the websites of the University's administration, schools and colleges, academic departments, administrative units, organized research units, intercollegiate athletics, and student organizations.

    Administrative History

    The University of California, Davis campus, originally known as the University Farm, was established by an act of the State Legislature in 1905. A committee appointed by the Regents purchased land near Davisville (now Davis) in 1906. The Regents officially took control of the property in September 1906 and constructed four buildings in 1907. By 1930, the campus had grown to 1,000 acres and by 1951, it had become 3,000 acres. In 2007, the campus has expanded to 5,300 acres, making it the largest UC campus in acreage.
    Short courses were first offered in 1908 and a three year non-degree program set up in 1909. In 1911, the first class graduated from the University Farm. The three year non-degree program continued until 1923. At that time, a two year non-degree program began and continued until 1958. In 1922, a four year undergraduate program began with the first class graduating in 1926.
    In 1959, the Regents declared that Davis was to be a general campus of the University. As of 2013, the university offers interdisciplinary graduate study and more than 100 undergraduate majors in four colleges -- Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Biological Sciences, Engineering, and Letters and Science. It also houses six professional schools -- Education, Law, Management, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing.
