    Acquisition Information

    This collection was created by Sonoma State University Library staff in 2009-2010 as part of the North Bay Digital Collections.

    Project Information

    These images were assembled from various photograph collections in the Sonoma State University Library's North Bay Regional & Special Collections Department. They were digitized in order to provide broader access, by students and faculty of the University and by community members, to the cultural and social history of California's North Bay region. A foundational virtual collection of digital images was created, which are available to the public through the library's "North Bay Digital Collections" website (see http://northbaydigital.sonoma.edu/ ) in addition to the California Digital Library's (CDL) Calisphere website (see http://www.calisphere.universityofcalifornia.edu/ ).

    Scope and Content of Collection

    The images in the North Bay Historic Preservation Digital Collection constitute an important chronicle of local buildings and represent a significant piece of the region's social, cultural, and anthropological history dating from the mid-1800s. The majority of photographs were taken in the 1970s by Sonoma State University students enrolled in the Historic Preservation Program, part of Sonoma State University's History Department. They include images of residences, libraries, military installations, churches, stores, new developments, and landscapes. Sonoma County is well represented, but images of Marin and Mendocino counties are also included.
    Items were selected from photographs in the Sonoma County Preservation Project, housed in the Sonoma State University Library's North Bay Regional & Special Collections Department. Consult the library for more information.
