In partnership with over 250 libraries, archives and museums (and growing), California Revealed provides free digitization, digital preservation, and online access to books, documents, photographs, audiovisual recordings, and ephemera that tell the incredible stories of the Golden State.
What is the purpose of digitization and preservation without community access and connection?
Want to develop an exhibit?
Host a community digitization day?
Sponsor an archives crawl?

We're offering $5,000 awards to promote your collections!

Do you have collections related to local/regional/state history that you'd like to digitize and put online?
In order to "reveal" more of California's history, the State Library invites smaller libraries, archives, and history museums to apply for up to $10,000 for a project to process and catalog California-related library and archival materials from their unprocessed collection backlogs. Awarded projects can begin as early as June 1, 2019 and must be completed by August 31, 2019.
In partnership with over 200 California libraries, archives and history museums, California Revealed (CA-R) is a multi-year program providing digitization, digital preservation, and online access to books, documents, photographs, audiovisual recordings, and ephemera that tell the incredible stories of the Golden State.
