13th-Annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar
Come and celebrate the diversity of stories that make Southern California such a place of discovery. At the Los Angeles Archives Bazaar, presented by L.A. as Subject and the USC Libraries, anyone with an interest in the region’s history will find something of value. A broad array of institutions and archives will have experts on hand to show off their collections and answer questions.
In addition to the wealth of information on display from exhibitors, day-long programming will feature preservation workshops and enlightening presentations. Guests can also look forward to a screening of new episode “Beach Culture” from the third season of KCET’s Emmy® Award-winning TV series LOST LA. The screening will be at 3:00 p.m. in Doheny Library’s second-floor Friends Lecture Hall. The episode discusses how one of Southern California’s great international exports has been its beach culture. Surfers, bodybuilders, and acrobats taught Californians how to have fun and stay young at the beach. LOST LA “Beach Culture” airs on Tuesday, Oct. 23rd at 8:30 p.m. on KCET.
The 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.
