Project overview: Catalog and digitize Yosemite Library’s “lost treasures,” including government documents dating back to the 1960s, to make them accessible to researchers within Yosemite and across the NPS community.
How your support helps: There are “lost treasures” dating back decades, covered in dust, in the park’s research library. These treasures contain invaluable information for current decision-makers on the history of park policies and procedures. But the documents are currently disorganized and difficult to locate, making them effectively inaccessible. By digitizing, cataloging, and making the physical copies available in professional library organization standards, an immeasurable amount of time and resources will be saved by Yosemite decision-makers and researchers.
This year: In 2022, interns will help catalog and digitize 100 linear feet of government documents dating back to the 1960s, and upload them as appropriate to eTIC (electronic Technical Information Center), making them accessible to researchers both within Yosemite and across the NPS community.
