Uncovering California's Environmental Collections

Welcome to the shared workspace for Uncovering California's Environmental Collections: A Collaborative Approach (CLIR UCEC).  This project (2010-2012) is supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, administered by the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) as part of its Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives Program.

Nine California special collections and archival repositories, in collaboration with the California Digital Library, will uncover 41 hidden collections related to the state's environment and environmental history (5 additional collections will be processed and made available before summer 2013). The collections document an array of important sub-topics such as irrigation, mining, forestry, agriculture, industry, land use, activism, and research. Together they form a multifaceted picture of the natural world and the way it was probed, altered, exploited and protected in California over the twentieth century.
