California Revealed is a California State Library initiative to help California’s public libraries and local heritage groups digitize, preserve, and provide online access to archival materials (books, newspapers, photographs, audiovisual recordings, and more) that tell the incredible stories of the Golden State.

Calisphere works closely with California Revealed to harvest these collections so that they are discoverable through the statewide aggregation. Explore all of our California Revealed collections in Calisphere! Additional California Revealed collections are added to Calisphere every three months.

The California Revealed Project is supported by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), administered in California by the State Librarian.
