    Project Information

    These photographs were assembled from the California History collection of the Yorba Linda Public Library. They were digitized in order to provide broader access to the cultural and social history of Yorba Linda, CA, particularly by the local K-12 teaching community -- a core target audience. A foundational virtual collection of digital image objects was created, which is available to the public through the library's local history website (see www.yorbalindahistory.org ) in addition to the California Digital Library's (CDL) Calisphere website (see http://www.calisphere.universityofcalifornia.edu/ ).
