Counting California, a single interface for accessing a variety of data and statistics about California from local, state, and federal government agencies, will be decommissioned on June 1, 2008.
CDL is pleased to report that in its first year, Calisphere has become a valuable resource for scholars, a popular destination for the general public, and an essential site for K-12 educators, who call it “a dream resource” and “a teacher’s dream come true.”
Over 1,500 new digitized primary resources are now available in the CDL’s Calisphere and Online Archive of California (OAC) websites as of February 2008.
CDL’s Calisphere team is partnering with the Alameda County Office of Education’s CTAP Region IV and the UC Irvine History Project in order to promote best practices for teaching with primary source materials and achieve other objectives.
The UCSF Library and Center for Knowledge Management is pleased to announce a new website featuring the Japanese Woodblock Print Collection.
The Calisphere’s California Cultures web site has been redesigned. The site now includes 3-5 historical topics for each of the included ethnic groups and browse terms as a way for users to easily access the content.
The UC Merced Library and the Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture collaborated to make more than a millennium of Japanese art available online.
American West (AmWest) is a three-year William and Flora Hewlett Foundation grant to assemble a virtual collection drawing from the resources of major research institutions. Learn more at http://www.cdlib.org/inside/projects/amwest/.
The Japanese American Relocation Digital Archives (JARDA) was recently re-designed and updated to be an integral part of the Calisphere Web site. JARDA’s more than 10,000 government and personal photographs, official documents, transcribed oral histories, paintings, diaries, and other primary sources bring you inside the story of Japanese American incarceration during World War II.
