Help to create access to oral histories and educational materials about the treatment and internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. These historic materials are currently in storage, and this position will assist in making them accessible to the public for research, education, and potentially even family history purposes.

Materials developed for specific projects funded through the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program(CCLPEP) may include: photos, oral history transcripts, DVDs, CDs, VHS tapes, newspaper articles, posters, books and event programs.

For each completed grant project, the volunteer will:

1. Review and organize the full scope of materials produced and/or submitted by the project’s grantee.

2. Create a one page summary document for each project and identify the need for additional detail management for each project - such as creation of a spreadsheet, etc.

Good organizational skills, attention to detail and some research experience needed.

Mission Statement

The California State Library is the state's information hub, preserving California's cultural heritage and connecting people, libraries and government to the resources and tools they need to succeed and to build a strong California.

Description

The 160-year old California State Library serves the people of California in several ways: It is the central reference and research library for state government and the Legislature. It provides non-partisan research to the Legislature and the Governor. It collects, preserves, generates and disseminates information ranging from California's priceless historical items to today's online texts. It advises, consults with, and provides technical assistance to California's public libraries, and it directs state and federal funds to support local public libraries and statewide library programs, and services. It houses the Braille and Talking Book Library which loans braille, cassette and talking books, magazines and playback equipment to northern Californians unable to read conventional print.
