Help Remodel our Department of Special Collections & University Archives
The Department of Special Collections & University Archives houses valuable historical collections. We have developed and nurtured them and ensured their safekeeping. Now we would like to share them with the campus and the community…but we need your help.
Our goal is to raise $200,000 in private support so we can begin remodeling the Department of Special Collections & University Archives. For more than thirty years, the Library has been dedicated to preserving the history of the University and its role in the Sacramento region. Over the years, through donations from individuals, families, community organizations, and local institutions, the Library has developed a strong collection of unique historical sources that reflect the larger history and culture of California, the Central Valley and the City of Sacramento.
Along with historical documents and artifacts about the University, the collection contains local and national political history. The Phil Isenberg Mayoral Papers and the John E. Moss Congressional Collection contain rich historical information on American life from the 1950s through the 1990s. The Japanese American Archival Collection, built by contributions from local families and organizations, reveals the compelling story of Japanese American internment during WWII.
Our special collections are a valuable educational and community resource. Your tax-deductible gift can help us create a place where the campus and the community can come together to celebrate a common history.
