Southeast Asian Diaspora Studies: Donating materials to the Archive

The UCI Libraries' Southeast Asian Archive is the richest collection of books, reports, manuscripts, archival materials, photos, artwork, and ephemera documenting the peoples of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia outside their homelands.

Donations from individuals or families

Letters, diaries, photos, scrapbooks, personal recipe files, and other materials that document the journey to and experience of Vietnamese, Cambodians, and Laotians in America and other countries provide valuable primary sources for the SEAA collections.  These materials do not need to be in English. 

Donating Materials: details and contact information

Donations from organizations, clubs, businesses

Materials from Southeast Asian community groups and businesses--in California or other states--help the Southeast Asian Archive document the experiences of the Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Laotian refugees and immigrants in the United States.  Examples: programs, flyers/publicity of events (cultural, political, etc.), exhibit catalogs, oral histories, photos.  We would be happy to meet with you to discuss prospective donations.

These materials do not need to be in English. 

Records of UCI student organizations are especially welcome--see these details.
