California Newspapers and Digitized Books

In this webinar we look at the printed word. Newspapers provide us with the details of everyday life that are hard to find anywhere else. Digitized books span the realm of the local history and biography which helps to tell the story of places and people. Where can you find Californian newspapers and digitized books? Many times you can find what you need online through digitization projects, subscription and free websites but for those times you can’t find what you need, knowing what is available and where is important.
