(From LA as Subject)
The Archives Bazaar is a great opportunity for students to see the variety of archival organizations that specialize in Los Angeles history. We encourage students to attend and volunteer!
Stay tuned for information about a UCLA SAA meet up!

Please mark your calendars for the 7th Annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar, to be held in USC’s Doheny Library on October 27th, 9-5pm (http://www.laassubject.org/documents/Save_the_date.pdf). The Archives Bazaar is a unique Los Angeles event and features more than 70 local collections of all sizes and foci, as well as special presentations on LA history and the care and management of historical materials. 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.
UCLA Department of Information of Information Studies graduates and students have played important roles in making the Bazaar a success over the years, both as organizers and as volunteers. Information about volunteering for this year’s Bazaar is available at http://www.laassubject.org/index.php/archives_bazaar. Otherwise simply plan to attend – it is always a really fun and fascinating day.
