Do you have any historical photographs or visual materials of the Tahoe area? If you do, or if you’d just like to learn more about the archival resources that document this community’s rich history, come visit the North Lake Tahoe Digitization Day this summer. This one-day event offers a chance for community members and visitors to bring in historical visual materials documenting the region and have those materials digitized according to professional archival standards. In return, participants will have the option to donate a digital copy of these materials for inclusion in the NLTHS’s database, providing public access to anyone interested in researching North Lake Tahoe’s cultural history. In addition to the digitization services, the program will offer presentations by local archivists, a historian, and a professional photographer, all discussing the value and versatility of photographic archives.
The North Lake Tahoe Historical Society and the University of Nevada, Reno’s Photography Program are excited to collaborate on this venture. The NLTHS has proudly served the North Lake Tahoe community for 35 years, and is offering a slate of programming centered around photography in the Tahoe basin throughout the year. This event offers an opportunity for community members to contribute to the NLTHS’s collections and become more involved in the process of preserving and promoting the region’s rich history. This collaborative event has been made possible in part by a Common Heritage grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
