All Day. All in one Place.

Come and celebrate the diversity of stories that make Southern California such a place of discovery. At the Los Angeles Archives Bazaar, presented by L.A. as Subject and the USC Libraries, anyone with an interest in the region’s history will find something of value. A broad array of institutions and archives will have experts on hand to show off their collections and answer questions.

In addition to the wealth of information on display from exhibitors, day-long programming will feature preservation workshops and enlightening presenatations.

The USC Libraries serve as the host institution for L.A. as Subject, an alliance of libraries, museums, and other archival and cultural organizations. The relationship complements the USC libraries’ strong regional history collection and is a natural outgrowth of the libraries’ efforts to preserve and expand access to the primary sources of L.A. history.

USC is minutes from downtown Los Angeles and is easily accessible by major freeways and the Metro Expo line. Doheny Library is located in the center of campus, adjacent to Alumni Park and across from Bovard Auditorium, on Trousdale Avenue. For information regarding parking on campus, visit the Parking Services Website.

Celebrating the Opening of the UCI Libraries’ Winter Exhibit

Our Majestic Lands: California’s National Parks

On Display through June 2017

Exhibit Curators: Becky Imamoto and Brian Williams

Out of all the states, California has the most national parks with nine in total, each representing an incredible diversity of environments and landscapes that includes both the lowest point in Death Valley,
and the largest elevation in Sequoia and Kings Canyon. While we now find enjoyment from their recreational use in activities ranging from hiking, to bouldering, camping and picnics, the appeal of these landscapes has a long and storied history that is uniquely
bound to the history of California and the establishment of the National Parks. The stories of the people who fought to preserve them for future generations are not without their controversies but the splendor of the parks are unquestionable and their enduring
appeal is a fundamental part of the California experience. This exhibition gives a look at the profound beauty that has inspired countless adventures into the National Parks of California to witness the awe of nature for themselves.

Japanese Americans in WWII

On February 19, 1942, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 authorizing the creation of military areas along the west coast from which “any and all persons may be excluded” at the discretion of the Secretary of War. This order resulted in the mass deportation and incarceration of tens of thousands of Japanese-American citizens and residents of Japanese descent on the premise that they constituted a security risk vis-a-vis the war with Japan. These families were forced to leave their homes and nearly all of their belongings and were placed in remote military-guarded camps for the next two and a half years.

California State University, Dominguez Hills plans to mark this dark point in U.S. history with a number of activities and events.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visitwww.calhum.org.
