The Annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar
Los Angeles history comes alive at the 8th-annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar. Organized by L.A. as Subject and presented by the USC Libraries, the annual event celebrates the diversity of Southern California's history. For scholarly researchers, journalists, history buffs, and those simply interested in exploring the stories of Los Angeles, discovery awaits everyone at the Archives Bazaar. This event is free and open to the public.
The Archives Bazaar draws its strength from the breadth and variety of its participants' collections. Large institutions will be represented at the bazaar along with smaller organizations and private collections whose materials fill the gaps left in the city's official history. Visit with California Historical Society Archivists and hear more about the vast CHS collections housed at USC and in our San Francisco Headquarters, along with representatives from more than 80 archives home to collections containing Los Angeles history. A rich suite of programming complements the gathering.
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.
