The Capp Street Project Archive documents the process, intention, and realization of installations and temporary projects sponsored by the Capp Street Project since 1983.

Under the auspices of California College of the Arts Libraries, the archive preserves and organizes materials relating to the projects and makes these materials available for study and research. Through this website, present-day audiences may view projects as they once existed, learn about the artists who created them, and experience these works anew.

CCA Vault

Vault: CCA's Institutional Repository

"An Institutional Repository is an online locus for collecting and preserving -- in digital form -- the intellectual output of an institution, particularly a research institution." (source: en.wikipedia.org)

Phase I. The library is organizing a collaborative inventory of images to record the creative ouput of CCA/C. Departments are encouraged to contribute digital copies of art and design work along with identifying data to our institutional repository, called CCA Vault.
