San Fernando Valley History

About this Collection

The San Fernando Valley History Digital Library is the first effort to assemble, digitize and make globally available historically significant documents, manuscripts, photographs and related graphic materials from public and private collections in the San Fernando Valley. It provides full, open and equal access to materials demonstrating the socio-economic changes and cultural evolution of the San Fernando Valley from the early 19th century through the end of the 20th century. The digital library database brings together significant historical photographs, illustrations, maps, manuscripts, documents and related graphic materials from a variety of collections located on the CSUN campus, including the Center for Photojournalism and Visual History, the Map Library, and the University Library's Special Collections, which includes the Urban Archives and the University Archives. Added to these items are selected images from twenty-nine local historical societies in the San Fernando Valley. View this collection on the contributor's website.
