Processing History

Processed by Cyndi Shein, 2008.

Historical Background

From its inception in the early 1960s, UCI's Public Affairs Office collected printed news clippings from various publications in an effort to document appearances of UCI in the news. Beginning in 1996 the Communications Office, one of the successors of the Public Affairs Office, assembled packets of news articles and named them "UCI Daily Clippings." The Communications Office distributed printed versions of "UCI Daily Clippings" through campus mail from 1996 until September 2000 and began to distribute them via electronic mail as early as 1998. Some "UCI Daily Clippings" were also made available online beginning in 1998. As of 2008, University Communications posts links to various publications on their Web page "UCI in the News" (http://today.uci.edu/NEWS/uciinthenews.asp).

Collection Scope and Content Summary

This collection includes newspaper and magazine clippings that feature the University of California, Irvine (UCI) or relate to its origins, faculty, staff, or students from 1954 to 1997. The earliest clippings document the Irvine Ranch, upon which the UCI campus is built. The majority of the clippings focus exclusively on UCI and its faculty, students, and staff. The clippings come from local and national sources. UCI Newsclips from 1954 through June 1996 are available on microfiche. The original printed versions of the clippings are available for 1954-1965 and July 1996-December 1997.

Collection Arrangement

This collection is arranged in chronological order.

Separation Note

The published serial, UCI Daily News Clippings was removed from this collection and cataloged separately in Special Collections and Archives.

Processing Note

The clippings in this collection were originally mounted on 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper and kept in loose-leaf notebooks. After the clippings were microfiched, the originals were discarded, with the exception of clippings from 1954-1965. The discoloration of 1954-1965 news clippings prevented the creation of high-quality microfiche images; therefore, the originals were kept for reference. During the transfer of the collection to microfiche, the clippings were kept in their original order under their supplied topical headings.
