Collection Policy

Meriam Library Special Collections collect materials that focus on the history of the Chico State campus, the land, and people of the Northeastern California service area. Currently, we are seeking accessions to fill particular gaps in our holdings.  We are actively seeking materials documenting Northeastern California from 1910 to the present, that highlight the environment, formal and informal economies, and Indigenous communities. Additionally, we are hoping to gather materials that document the experiences of people of color, women, LGBTQ+, campus and community groups.
