Background
The Chicano Collection/ Colección Chicana was first established in 1978, when a collection of nearly 17,000 items was transferred from the Centro de Estudios Chicanos to Love Library, both at San Diego State University (SDSU). This transfer occurred through the efforts of Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) Director Gus Chavez, with support from the Mexican American Studies faculty and Chicano students. Chavez appealed to Library Administration to transfer the materials from the Centro de Estudios Chicanos because of funding and space constraints.
