California Newspaper Project
The California Newspaper Project is an 18 year effort by the CBSR to identify, describe and preserve California newspapers. Close to 9,000 California newspapers were inventoried in over 1,400 repositories throughout the state, 1.5 million pages of California newspapers were preserved and made available on microfilm, and 100,000 rolls of negative microfilm rolls are being processed for permanent storage at the UC Regional Library Storage Facilities.
The California Newspaper Project does not hold newspapers in its offices. Its database allows researchers to narrow their contacts to institutions holding the relevant titles.
