Over one million historical images, texts, recordings, and other items are now accessible in the statewide digital resource aggregation represented by Calisphere, and soon in the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). This collection contains unique objects from over 200 libraries, museums and archives in California. At its current rate of expansion, it will soon be one of the largest contributors of DPLA’s national-level aggregation, offering students, researchers, and the public more and more access to the digitized history and special collections of the state of California.
The Center for Sacramento History Photo Collection holds the honor for pushing Calisphere over the one million mark. The photo below, “Immigrant Raid Protest, 5/6/1982” shows how this collection provides historical context for many relevant issues facing our state and our nation today.
