We are looking for collaborators in various states of readiness to participate in this grant-funded project to assist LA as Subject (LAAS) members in sharing knowledge and developing the skills to build digital collections while providing postgraduate training for new archivists.

Supported by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) Library, the California State University, Northridge (CSUN) Library, and the University of Southern California (USC) Libraries each hosts and mentors a Resident Archivist, who is gaining experience in working on digital library projects with 30 LAAS community archives for two years, beginning in May 2019.

The Resident Archivists are professionals with Master’s degrees and will work with the selected LAAS members to assess and/or complete digital projects. Work includes: Visiting partner sites; analyzing digitization needs; generating project plans; conducting training sessions and workshops; developing and documenting best practices; and assisting in the completion of a collaborative LAAS digital library project.

Project proposals to be considered must include:

Collections related to Los Angeles history
Collections that can be made publicly accessible freely and for research and educational purposes
Collections are predominately made-up of original material

CSUDH, CSUN, and USC will each work with a total of 10 LAAS archives in their geographic and/or collecting area during this project. If you are interested in participating, please fill out the form below and submit by November 17, 2019. If you have any questions about the project or the proposal application, the residents can be contacted at

NOTE: You are not required to be an LA as Subject member to submit a proposal, however, you or your institution will be expected to become members by the end of the grant period. For more information about LA as Subject please read the LA as Subject Charter -
