In 1964, during the tenure of University of Maine President Lloyd Hartman Elliot the existing College of Agriculture was renamed the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture to reflect the developing program and staff orientation within the College. The objectives of the College were to provide high quality educational opportunities in the agricultural and life sciences and to contribute generally to the economic, social and cultural development of the state by means of basic applied research and various extension educational techniques to help groups and individuals better understand the need and action necessary for properly managing and developing Maine's resources: people, land, forest, water and climate. The three functions of the College were resident instruction, research and instruction. The College offered a number of baccalaureate, graduate, and associate degree programs.

The records mainly contain textual information created and curated by the University of Maine College of Life Sciences and Agriculture.
