Orange County & Southeast Asian Archive Center
Community-Centered Since 1987
The Orange County & Southeast Asian Archive (OC & SEAA) Center at UCI Libraries provides a collaborative learning and event space, consultation and partnerships, and research resources to document and study the history and changing demographics of the Orange County region.
Materials from the Libraries' current Southeast Asian Archive, as well as a growing collection of Orange County regional history resources are housed in the center. Archival and rare materials related to the OC & SEAA Center remain in Special Collections & Archives located on the fifth floor of Langson Library.
The mission of the Orange County & Southeast Asian Archive (OC&SEAA) Center - a unit of the Department of Special Collections & Archives in the University of California, Irvine Libraries - is to provide instruction, training, and research resources for the UC Irvine community to document and preserve the diverse histories of the Orange County, California region and the diasporic peoples of Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.
