    Scope and Content of Collection

    The Community Organization and Research Institute was formed in 1972. It is now known as the Institute for Social, Behavioral and Economic Research (ISBER). ISBER mission statement, from http://www.isber.ucsb.edu/ms :
    "While most other ORUs have a relatively well-defined identity forged around a common research specialization, since its inception, ISBER has been intentionally organized to serve a broad range of interests, promoting interdisciplinary work that often blurs the boundaries among the social sciences, the humanities, the behavioral sciences, and, in some cases, the physical and life sciences. In this regard ISBER has played a crucial role in efficiently administering contracts and grants which otherwise would have encountered difficulty if housed elsewhere.
    "ISBER's researchers represent a wide range of social science and other research concerns. This is evidenced in the intellectual diversity of ISBER's fourteen Centers, including Centers for the Advanced Study of Individual Differences, Communication and Social Policy, East Asia, Evolutionary Psychology, Global Studies, Health Data Research, Information Technology and Society, Meso American Research, Middle East Studies, Police Practices and Community, Michael D. Palm Center, Spatially Integrated Social Science, the Study of Religion, and Social Science Survey Center (and Benton Survey Research Laboratory)."
