The 2012 Los Angeles Archives Bazaar Is A Success!

On October 27, 2012, Special Collections and University Archives participated in the 7th annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar held at Doheny Memorial Library on the USC campus. Over eighty archives were represented and hundreds of scholarly researchers, journalists, history buffs, and those simply interested in exploring the stories of Los Angeles attended the one-day event. Special Collections and University Archives shared materials from the Malibu Historical Collection, University Archives, and the Digital Collections with the public over the course of the day. Over one hundred people stopped by our table!

The Rindge and Adamson family papers, which are part of the Malibu Historical Collection, were also featured in the special session “A Very Quick Tour of Los Angeles Area Archives” where thirteen L.A. as Subject members shared one notable collection from their archives as a way of introducing their materials. Approximately 80 people attended the session.

A special thanks to Jessica Geiser, Lindsey Gant, and Kevin Miller for making the day a success!

October is American Archives Month!

In addition to celebrating the American record, archives month also raises awareness among the general public regarding the value of archives and archivists. Over the past few years, Pepperdine University Libraries Special Collections and University Archives has participated in the annual Archives Bazaar to promote such awareness. The event celebrates the diversity of Southern California’s history by bringing together archives, archivists, scholarly researchers, journalists, history buffs, and those simply interested in exploring the history of Southern California in one central location at USC’s Doheny Memorial Library on Saturday, October 27, 2012, from 9am to 5pm.  The event is FREE and open to the public.

This year, the Rindge and Adamson Family Papers from Special Collections and University Archives, will be featured in the session “A Very Quick Tour of Los Angeles Area Archives.” Here is the description of the session:

“Just as speed dating brings together lonely hearts, this quick-paced series of 5-minute presentations will help connect scholars, students, and history buffs with the archival collections they need. More than a dozen L.A. as Subject members will share one notable item from their archives as a way of introducing their collections. Bring a notepad, watch the presentations, and then head down to the exhibition hall for a second date.”

Special Collections and University Archives will also have a booth at the event so stop by and say hi to learn more about the history of the university as well as the region!
