University Archives & Special Collections

A guide to our collections, primary sources, and finding and accessing materials in UA&SC

Embark on a journey through time with the University Archives and Special Collections at CSU, Fullerton. Established in 1967, our mission is to preserve and provide access to the university's institutional history, as well as to acquire and maintain rare and valuable materials that support our curriculum.

Our collections are a treasure trove of rare books, literary manuscripts, artist's books, antiquarian maps, and other primary source materials that offer a unique perspective on the history of our university and the broader community. We take great care to ensure that our collections are preserved for future generations and made accessible to all who seek to explore them.


Whether you're a student, scholar, or simply someone with a passion for history, our Research Guide is your gateway to the University Archives and Special Collections. Here, you'll find information on our collections, tutorials on primary sources, and dozens of links to primary source collections online. Be sure to check out our online exhibits and puzzles when you need a break from studying.

We are always looking for ways to improve our Research Guide and make our collections more accessible. If you have any suggestions or would like to learn more, please feel free to contact us at
