More than 100 yearbooks from Sacramento-area schools (1898-1949) are now available to search and view online through the Sacramento Public Library's recently upgraded Sacramento Room Digital Collections website. Visitors to the site can search the yearbooks by keyword and view high-resolution images of every page. The yearbooks are from the collections of the Sacramento Public Library and the Center for Sacramento History, and ten local junior and senior high schools are represented, including Sacramento Senior High, McClatchy High, San Juan Union High and Christian Brothers School, as well as California Junior High and David Lubin Junior High.
The Sacramento Room Digital Collections is an ongoing project made possible by generous funding provided through the Sacramento Public Library Foundation. Since the project began in 2009, around 2,000 photographs, 800 postcards and 50 menus have been digitized. Collections are managed, stored and made available through OCLC's CONTENTdm digital collection management software.
