Sacramento Archives Crawl - Saturday October 26!
The 9th Annual Sacramento Archives Crawl is Saturday, October 26! This free event gives the public a chance to see historic treasures from more than 20 Northern California archives at four host locations in downtown Sacramento: the California State Archives, California State Library, Center for Sacramento History, and Sacramento Public Library. Participants can also go on behind-the-scenes tours, take part in a scavenger hunt, and attend lectures by local historians. This year’s theme, Preserving the Struggle: Archives and Activism, highlights items related to local protests, strikes, and other civic movements. The Crawl runs from 10 am to 4 pm and free bus transportation between locations is provided.
New Finding Aids Online
We have hundreds of archival collections here at the Center, and we're making a big push to upload finding aids for every single one of them to the Online Archive of California. This will make it easier for everyone to discover what we have in our repository, which will further open up access to our collections for research. New finding aids are being added every week. Check them out, and check back often!
