L.A. as Subject Launches New Collaboration with ‘Los Angeles’ Magazine, Passes 100-Post Mark at KCET
The USC Libraries and L.A. as Subject have launched a new online collaboration with Los Angeles magazine. Weekly posts to the magazine's City Think blog will, using a single archival image drawn from L.A. as Subject member collections, highlight specific details that help define the city's history. The first piece, on the L.A. origins of the Ralphs supermarket chain, debuted on Tuesday, December 11.
Meanwhile, L.A. as Subject's partnership with KCET-TV, now nearly two years old, recently passed a major milestone with the 100th online feature about Southern California history. Since January 2011, L.A. as Subject contributions to KCET.org have explored everything from L.A.'s clashing street grids to Southern California's late-nineteenth-century ostrich craze.
Both joint ventures highlight the USC Libraries' role as host institution for L.A. as Subject and are part of the libraries' continuing efforts to promote and improve access to the primary sources of our region's history.
