The Archives cares for and provides access to documents that tell the story of the State Park System in California and the Department's stewardship collections. The purpose of the Archives is to increase the Department's knowledge base by actively acquiring documents in a variety of formats which serve to further the research needs of the Department. The Archives is a clearinghouse for studies, surveys, bibliographies, reports, plans, and other records created by Parks staff which have enduring value. In addition to collecting data on the Department's own functions and endeavors, the Archives also the serves as the registrar for the Department's stewardship collections. These collections relate to the history of a park unit or property before it was acquired by the state, and include manuscripts, personal and family papers, company records, and topical collections.
