The UCI Libraries provide vital leadership in UCI's distinction as a premier research university. The Libraries are committed to supporting and inspiring members of UCI's diverse community to create and contribute new models of research, scholarship, and innovations in all academic subject areas.

To that end, the UCI Libraries have created two spaces for the depositing and sharing of publications by UCI affiliates. The first is dedicated to research produced by members of the Library Association of the University of California, Irvine (LAUC-I) and library staff (see below).

The second is more general in scope and is open to faculty partnering with the UCI Libraries and whose contributions do not fall in the purview of any of the campus' established research centers, departments, and programs. This research is linked in the left sidebar under “Affiliated Units”.

Protest in Practice: The University of California Irvine's Place in the Anti-Vietnam War Movement from 1965-1970


"Protest in Practice" explores the tactics of resistance emplyed by students and faculty on several college campuses during the anti-Vietnam War movement. It focuses on the uniquely peaceful and open character of the protests that took place on the UCI campus in comparison to other institutions and highlights how that character lead to a positive relationship between the students, faculty, and the wider Orange County community. Ultimately, this report proves that the University of California Irvine played a vital role in the anti-war movement despite common beliefs.

The Private City: Irvine (Company), California


This paper describes privatization of land use regulation in Irvine, California as a descendant of the technique of using private companies to undertake the government function of colonization. It argues that privatization of land use decision-making originated far earlier than the 20th century, and asserts that The Irvine Company is able to exercise tremendous control over the city of Irvine in large part because of the strong foundation of private ownership established under the Spanish colonial regime.
