Out of the Archives: Filipinos of Ventura County

Today’s feature was a real toss up. I knew that I wanted to highlight Cal State Channel Island’s Filipinos of Ventura County collection, but I was torn between two very different photos. This is the one that won. Pretty cute, huh? Maybe I’ll put the other one up another day:

Collection: Filipinos in Ventura County Digital Image Collection

I really wanted to include the Filipinos of Ventura County collection because I got to meet the librarian, Ellie Tayag at the Association for Asian American Studies conference this year in Seattle. She and her team did a really cool job of working with local community members to digitize their family photos, saving that history for the families and the state of California. The earlier materials have also been made into a book. I had some trouble finding the collection on CSU CI’s library page, but it is available via the Online Archive of California or Calisphere, which has already been featured on Out of the Archives. More on the collection, via OAC:
The John Spoor Broome Library’s Filipinos in Ventura County collection includes photograph images capturing the history of Filipinos and their contributions to the community from the 1900s to 1990s. Collection includes images of historical interest for the counties of Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles.
Currently, 200 digital images can be accessed online at Calisphere and Online Archive of California. Additional images will be made avaliable via our library’s Institutional Repository at a later date.
