The University of California system is considered one of the finest in the United States, if not the world. To honor this fact, the Center for Studies in Higher Education has created this rather large digital archive of materials about the history of each of the California campuses, along with various oral histories, scanned documents, and online exhibits. From the site's main page, visitors can peruse a brief historical tour of the University of California, and learn about the various regents and presidents who have served the flagship campus at Berkeley. Moving on from this general historical outline, visitors can view detailed information on various aspects of the systems' ten campuses, divided into such thematic areas as academics, student life, and libraries. What is equally impressive are the extensive bibliographies that accompany each campus section, an element that will be helpful to visitors seeking additional reading material. Finally, visitors will want to peruse the archives and exhibits section, which contains several nice online exhibits (including one on the University at the turn of the 19th century), and links to a number of oral histories with former faculty members, administrators, and regents.
