The WVC Library Archives project is a work in progress. Over the past several years staff, faculty, and student volunteers have been invaluable in collecting, cleaning, organizing, and processing of archival materials on the campus.
In 2010 we received a Local History Digital Resources Project grant from the California State Library. The project was supported in whole or in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
As a part of the project, 200 images from the West Valley College archives were scanned and are hosted at the Califa Digital Collections. In the summer of 2011 the collection was loaded on the Calisphere and Online Archive of California websites.
Additional scans will be added to the Califa Digital Collection prior to uploading to Calisphere and the Online Archive of California.
West Valley College Library Archive collection guides (also known as finding aids) can be viewed at the Online Archive of California.
The WVC Library Archives open by appointment to is students, faculty, staff, visiting researchers and the general public.
Please contact us to make an appointment to use the collection.
