Chicana/Chicano Collections

An ongoing project of UA&SC and The Chicana & Chicano Resource Center Librarian, this collaboration preserves documents related to the founding and activities of the Chicana & Chicano Resource Center (CRC) from 1972, as the Mexico & Southwest Collection, to the present.

The CRC amassed a collection of over 500 audio-visual recordings documenting the Chicana/o Community in Orange County, CA, and events of historical and cultural significance to the University as well as local Chicana/o newspapers, books, journals, and magazines dating from the beginning of the Chicana/o Movement in Orange County.

The list includes items that are related to but not part of the original CRC records and collection.
