As part of its commitment to document the history of UC Merced, the Library collects materials related to the academic and research activities of its faculty. Of particular interest are those works that have had a significant impact on the world outside academia, and whose area of impact exists in concert with the Library's other collection areas of emphases, or those faculty who have established new areas of study that have had a significant impact on academia itself.
UC Merced faculty member Dunya Ramicova has designed costumes for hundreds of productions of theater, opera, film, and television both in the United States and abroad. This collection of drawings spans the entirety of her oeuvre, and stands as one of the few complete collections of costume designs by a single designer held by an academic institution.
