This artificial collection consists of various publications issued by California social welfare agencies. The collection was
probably created, at least in part, from materials held in the USC School of Social Work Library, which were then transferred
to the California Social Welfare Archives. While other similar collections focus on agencies and services in Los Angeles and
southern California, this particular collection is comprised of publications about areas in northern California-- San Francisco,
Santa Clara, Sacramento, Marin County, etc.
The reports, directories, and articles in these publications cover topics such as mental health services, child welfare services,
the aging population, community and governmental services, home care programs, etc. Most are from the 1960s and 1970s.
The use of archival materials for on-site research does not constitute permission from the California Social Welfare Archives
to publish them. Copyright has not been assigned to the California Social Welfare Archives, and the researcher is instructed
to obtain permission from the copyright holder to quote from or publish manuscripts in the CSWA's collections.
