For more than 20 years, the L.A. AS SUBJECT consortium has brought to life the diverse, often hidden stories that make Southern California such a fascinating place of discovery. In 2005, we inaugurated the annual Los Angeles ARCHIVES BAZAAR to give anyone with an interest in the region’s history a one-stop opportunity to interact with dozens of archives, from large institutions to private collectors. In all, more than 80 archives are represented at this event, which is free and open to the public.
In addition to archives and institutions in the exhibitor halls, the bazaar will feature workshops on audio formats, home movies, and the conservation of family photographs and scrapbooks as well as a range of discussions with experts—on L.A. as the capital of film noir, the Los Angeles Central Library, the Los Angeles Women's March and centennial of the suffrage movement, religious subcultures in Southern California, and more!
The University of Southern California (USC) Libraries serve as the host institution for L.A. as Subject, an alliance of libraries, museums, and other archival and cultural organizations. The relationship complements the USC libraries’ strong regional history collection and is a natural outgrowth of the libraries’ efforts to preserve and expand access to the primary sources of L.A. history.
USC is minutes from downtown Los Angeles and is easily accessible by major freeways and the Metro Expo line. Doheny Library is located in the center of campus, adjacent to Alumni Park and across from Bovard Auditorium, on Trousdale Avenue.
