The Chicana/o Archive also brings together a hallmark selection of primary source materials on Chicana feminist activism of the San Diego area.
The Archive Committee and SDSU Library working together have produced resources for the local community including a traveling exhibit of San Diego's Chicano movement history as well as an interactive digital exhibit of films, photographs and documents in the Archive collection.

Since September 2007 a group of community representatives, faculty, and library staff at SDSU have been developing a Chicana/o Archive Project. The purpose is to preserve the priceless records of the struggles of the struggle for civil rights, and an end to second class citizenship, and educational underachievement. The library staff along with a committee have worked together to build an important archive collection, one that will benefit present and future students and community members who want to tell the story of how Chicanas and Chicanos have struggled to improve their lives here in the border region.
