The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences was established as the University of Arizona's first academic unit in 1885, subsequent to the Morrill Act of 1862 that offered funding to states or territories with a land grant university. The Hatch Act of 1887 required land-grant universities to share research findings through Experiment Stations; the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension was created after the Smith-Lever Act in 1914.

These collections contain historical and current publications from the University of Arizona Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension. Publications include Experiment Station reports, bulletins, and Timely Hints for Farmers; Cooperative Extension publications on Animal Systems, Consumer Education, Farm Management and Safety, Food Safety, Nutrition and Health, Gardening/Home Horticulture, Insects and Pest Management, Marketing and Retailing, Natural Resources and Environment, Plant Diseases, Plant Production/Crops, Water, and Youth and Family. Commodity based agricultural reports, known as "Production Reports", and Arid Lands research publications are also included in the collection.
