The UCI Libraries’ Orange County & Southeast Asian Archive Center, which opened last week, seeks to become an incubator for digital scholarship, data analysis, digital humanities, video/oral histories, and other interdisciplinary projects based on the geographic area. It will house materials from the UCI Libraries’ current Southeast Asian Archive and regional history resources and provide a collaborative locale for users seeking to document and study the history of Orange County and its demographics. “As UCI celebrates its 50th year and we move forward as a major educational institution, creating spaces like the OC & SEAA Center on campus is vital toward our leaders, students and community members joining forces to advance diversity scholarship and communications,” said Prany Sananikone, UCI director of diversity relations. The center will be open Monday through Friday from 1-5 p.m.
