New webinar! Demystifying Digitization

Due to the coronavirus, we need to cancel our summer workshops.

Like everyone else, we'll see you on the internet! We're substituting our workshops with a webinar, "Demystifying Digitization: An Introduction to California Revealed," on Thursday, April 30th, 12:00-1:30pm.

During this webinar, Director Pamela Vadakan will provide general guidelines for any digitization project, as well as review the steps to participate in California Revealed. 

Please feel free to join us if you're new to our program or would like a refresher. All are welcome!

Our Collections, Our Communities: New Outreach Assistance


What is the purpose of digitization and preservation without community access and connection?

Want to develop an exhibit?
Host a community digitization day?
Develop curriculum?
Sponsor an archives crawl?
Host a screening or talk? 

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

In order to foster community discovery, engagement, and use of digital collections, we are pleased to announce a new funding opportunity called "Our Collections, Our Communities."

Processing/Cataloging Assistance

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.
