The collection also contains publications, planning documents and drawings, invitations and other ephemeral materials, and photographs and video recordings of the commencement.

The collection includes both physical and born digital material. The physical material is comprised of plans of the field showing seating, parking, camera angels, and activity venues; publications about the commencement and 50th anniversary of UCI; admission tickets and passes; invitations; ephemera; volunteer checklist and media press kit. Commencement programs include one signed by President Obama, commencement lanyards with badges, planning documentation, letters of invitation, and lists of special guests.
